Sceptical Christianity

Exploring Credible Belief

Jessica Kingsley Publishers
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 revisits some of the key aspects of Christianity, such as the Trinity, and shows how they can be thought of in the best tradition of critical Christianity. The result is a thought-provoking book that will sparks discussion on how the Church should behave and teach to retain its credibility.
RELATED TOPICS: Christianity, Spirituality
