Honest to God

40th Anniversary Edition
  • By John A. T. Robinson
Product Description

"John Robinson's Honest to God and my The Secular City first appeared within two years of each other and together generated a new agenda for church and theology in the 1960s. I concede now that I seem to have been mistaken about the "decline of religion"! But Honest to God is, if anything, more pertinent now than ever. With the upsurge of various fundamentalisms it is a bracing and eloquent call to reexamine out-dated images of God. Over 40 years it has lost none of its vigor." --Harvey Cox, Victor S. Thomas Professor of Divinity, Harvard Divinity School

"The republication of John A. Robinson's 1963 volume, Honest to God, invites us to reread this controversial work with fresh eyes, in the light of the many trends of this forty year period toward greater plurality, globalization and inclusivity in cultural and religious thought. Such a rereading will allow Robinson's volume to be seen as one that called, not for the discarding of Christian faith in God and Christ, but a clarification of what is essential to that faith." --Rosemary Radford Ruether, Carpenter Professor of Feminist Theology, Graduate Theological Union

John A.T. Robinson's Honest to God was a blockbuster on the theological and cultural scene when it was published in 1963. It was "one of the most widely discussed religious writings of the century and more than a million copies were sold" (J. Macquarrie). It popularized theological trends that appeared to support the "God is Dead" theology. This 40th Anniversary Edition features reflective essays by a North American and Anglican theologian that puts this landmark work in its context and analyzes its impact and significance.
