This is the edited collection of papers given at the recent
symposium, Honest to God, Forty Years On. Following the 40th
anniversary of the publication of Honest to God, by John Robinson,
the symposium was held to discuss how far the issues raised in the
book 40 years ago, have impacted on the Church and on current
Christian thought, and to ask where we are in the debate about
these issues today. This is a contemporary discussion with a
forward-looking attitude. The book reflects the discussions and
divides into four main areas covering; Culture and Context, how the
original text Honest to God, tried to relate doctrine to
contemporary thought, and the situation today; God Language in
Honest to God and God Language now, Behaviour and Belief, has
religion been reduced to ethics?; The Christology of Honest to God
and what Jesus means to us now. Featuring an introduction by the
Dean of Southwark, Colin Slee, Honest to God, Forty Years On is an
engaging text for any reader with an interest in comparative
religious studies. Contributors: Don Cupitt, Jane Williams, Alister
McGrath, Colin Buchanan, Richard Cheetham, Colin Slee, Martyn
Percy, Christopher Ryan, Peter Gomes, Trevor Hart and Eric James.
Colin Slee is Dean of Southwark Cathedral in London.
