Overview


Doubts and Loves argues that it is better to use Christianity as good poetry than as bad science and although the author sets out to deconstruct its doctrines he does so because he is anxious to release the power of these great themes from the antiquated containers that convey them. Holloway's radical book is a rescue attempt, a heartfelt and passionately argued case for salvaging the challenge of Jesus by revealing the essence of his teachings and showing why they remain revolutionary, humane, and of massive spiritual importance.

Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher

"A sensitive, brave and inspiring book, which responds honestly and with great intelligence to the religious dilemma of our times."  —Karen Armstrong, author, A History of God

"A thoughtful, playful, courageous and deeply altruistic book from a man who has a genuine concern for the spiritual and practical welfare of others. It would make a fine companion for anyone who wishes to live a life of any depth, offering the voice of an intelligent, compassionate friend in a bewildering universe of pain, joy and absurdity. This is a challenging and very necessary plea for dynamic, questioning faith."  —A. L. Kennedy, author, What Becomes
