A Restless Faith

This book tells the story of Keith’s restless journey of faith, from his early days at Prairie Bible Institute in Canada, through positive encounters with
Anglican evangelicalism in Australia, and into a more restful and sustainable faith. The book charts a way forward for people who feel they must choose between fundamentalism and jettisoning their faith altogether.

“This is a journey out of fundamentalism with a difference. So many such books depict personal despair and existential agony. This one takes us into the warm and generous lifeworld of a man who, from his youth, has loved a theological stoush as much as a good game of touch rugby. It follows Keith’s steps as he loses his faith in fundamentalism’s answers–but never his love for the people who raised him in its traditions. This is a book to bring comfort and hope to those walking a similar path.”

Faith without fear

Faith without Fear asks whether Christianity has the wherewithal to meet the increasingly acute intellectual and moral challenges currently facing it, and whether it can shed the reactive fear which now grips its more conservative forms. Major topics of the book include same-sex marriage, patriarchal push-back and the sociology of conservatism. The book seeks to demonstrate the inadequacy and damaging impact of older ways of reading the Bible, and to plot what some will consider a risky way forward for 21st century Christians.
