“A sensitive, brave and inspiring book” exploring the state of modern Christianity from the international bestselling author of Leaving Alexandria (Karen Armstrong).
A prize-winning author and former Bishop for the Scottish Episcopal Church, Richard Holloway has written extensively on the role of religion in modern society. Now, in this passionate and heartfelt book, Holloway interrogates the traditional ways of understanding the Bible. In doing so he demonstrates the power of the great Christian stories as they apply today, so far removed from their antiquated settings.
Holloway’s sophisticated and sensitive approach provides a blueprint for living with faith that takes the core teachings of the Christian past and invigorates them with renewed power for today’s world. The result is “an exhilarating book. It is not every day that you encounter a person of Richard Holloway’s experience wrestling with the very foundations of his chosen way of life. This in itself gives the book a tone of urgency” (The Scotsman, UK).
This edition of Doubts and Loves includes a new afterword by the author.
“I don’t know when I have been more impressed, indeed, excited, by a work…It answers the seemingly tormenting questions in a completely satisfying way.”—Ruth Rendell
