Description

'His conclusions are refreshing . . . a brave and scholarly book.' Observer

The use of God in any moral debate is so problematic as to be almost worthless. We can argue with one another as to whether this or that alleged claim genuinely emanated from God, but surely it is better to leave God out of the argument and find strong human reasons for supporting the systems we advocate.

We need a sensible and practical approach that will help us pick our way through the moral maze that confronts us in the pluralistic society we live in. Godless Morality offers exactly this - a human-centered justification for contemporary morality.

'Passionate, exciting and interesting . . . [a] theological roller-coaster.' Herald

'A book of morals for our brave new world, by a very wise man indeed. Inspiring. Fascinating. Full of hope.' Fay Weldon

'This is a courageous book for a bishop to write, and everything it says about morality is right and true. On both counts I applaud it.' Literary Review
