BUT THAT I CAN'T BELIEVE by Rev. John Robinson


Email this review


This slight volume puts together a number of pieces by the Bishop of Woolwich, following in the main the trend of his thought in his widely read, Honest to God. The first half is made up of short articles first published for mass circulation. The second section aims at a more informed and Christian audience. Adam and Eve, the Virgin Birth, Miracles, Resurrection, Death, and Hell are among the topics treated in the first part; and God as Incognito, the Ascension, the Trinity, and others are taken up in the second. Throughout, the Bishop follows his now familiar tactic of seeking to set out the kernel of sound faith given under the symbolic or mythical figures of the traditional terms. The total impact, however, adds little to the point of view he has given in his earlier books in this vein.
