printable order form

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.

  1. Mark Lindsay

    From The Melbourne Anglican
    Mascord prizes open some of the most treasured, and yet at the same time contested, assumptions of conservative Christianity… [Faith Without Fear] provides a ray of hope to those whose own, or whose families’, lives and faith have been shattered by an inflexible and unforgiving hermeneutic.
