Sceptical Christianity: Exploring Credible Belief [9781785920622]

(No reviews yet) Write a Review

How can Christianity remain a credible religion in our current era of scepticism? Reviving the debates begun by John Robinson and the demythologisation movement over half a century ago, Sceptical Christianity considers the main reasons behind people's religious scepticism and posits the question: what can be plausibly believed today? Reiss discusses issues of such as the relationship between religion and science and assisted dying, much debated among people of faith and no faith,, and shows how they can be thought of in the best tradition of sceptical and critical Christianity. The result is a thought provoking book which sparks discussion on how the Church should behave and teach to retain its credibility.


AUTHOR: The Rev'd Dr Robert Paul Reiss was ordained in the Church of England in 1969 and is currently Canon Emeritus of Westminster Abbey.

In 2012 Robert was awarded a PhD by the Archbishop of Canterbury for his work on the history of the Ministry Division.
