Honest Religion for Secular Man

""Religion is much too great and permanent an element in human experience to be swept out of sight,"" writes Bishop Newbigin. ""I want to ask what must be the religion of a Christian who accepts the process of secularization and lives fully in the kine of world into which God has led us."" His answer involves relating the universal fact of secularization to the biblical picture of the nature and destiny of man. It involves, too, some criticism of recent Christian responses to secularization - but the whole tone of this book is positive. The emphasis is on knowing God, being God's people, and living of God in the midst of the secular. The late Lesslie Newbigin was one of the twentieth century's most influential Christian thinkers. A founding bishop of the Church in South India, he later served as an associate general secretary of the World Council of Churches, before being called back to southern India as Bishop in Madras in 1965.
