Foreword by Bishop Willie Walsh. A radical and provocative challenge to Church beliefs. A major reason for the current crisis in Christian churches, Hilary Wakeman argues, is that their doctrines are simply not believable. In this readable and thought-provoking book she argues that many of the statements of belief that Christians are required to assent to as literal truth, such as Virgin Birth and the bodily Resurrection of Jesus, are driving many people out of the churches and keeping others out. She examines the main tenets of Christian beliefs and considers ways they can be brought up to date and expressed with honesty and integrity. Hilary Wakeman was among the first women ordained in the Church of England in 1994. 6 x 9
