Religion Under Attack

Getting Theology Right
  • By Nigel Leaves
In recent years, as there has been a fundamentalist resurgence in religion, it has at the same time increasingly come under attack from many quarters. In this wide-ranging book Nigel Leaves examines the main critics of religion: scientists, the new atheists, the spirituality revolution, and those who have done away with religion altogether. He does not confine himself solely to Christianity, but also discusses the attack on Islam from both within and outside its borders. Leaves proposes a unique theological response to the crises of belief. He wrestles religion from extremists and into the hands of reasonable and sane believers. He offers hope to the future direction of religion, because in the absence of a major theological revolution, religions will continue their further decline into either obscurity or fossilized fundamentalism. This is a ground-breaking book that not only analyses the current vibrant (and hostile) debate as to the value of religion today, but also offers a workable solution: religion must be rescued by good God-talk
