Product description

Product Description

After 2000 years of ascendency the Christian churches are in decline.

This book is a brilliant analysis of the many questions for which thoughtful Christians and non-Christians are seeking answers in a secular scientific world.
What do we mean by “God”? Is there a soul ? What is consciousness ? What is the relevance of evolutionary biology and cosmology for Christian faith or religion generally ? And more.

Unlike the criricisms of Dawkins, Hitchins and others the author offers a positive way forward. The book also provides excellent summaries and critiques of the most important scholarship in the field, including authors such as Spong, Borg, Crossan, the “Death of God” theologians, and the findings of the Jesus Seminar.

For the churches then it is time for a re-think. This book shows you how.
