Beyond the Burning Times: A Pagan and Christian in Dialogueby Philip Johnson, Gus diZerega
A fascinating dialogue between a Pagan and a Christian. Gus DiZerega, an American pagan and and an academic engages in debate with Philip Johnson, an Australian Christian theologian. The two debate questions such as the nature of spirituality, who or what is deity, how humans relate to the divine, the sacred feminine, gender and sexuality, and the teachings and claims of Jesus. At the end of the book another Pagan writer comments on what Philip Johnson has argued, and another Christian comments on what Gus DiZerega has argued. Paganism is acknowledged as the fastest growing 'religion' in western Europe and this book helps readers to engage with it and with orthodox Christian belief.

As the editor of this volume I am biased, but as a fair minded reader can see by the anonymous reviews below with 1 star, the reviews aren't serious attempts to engage with the volume. This book is the first attempt in print to bring together a Christian and Pagan for respectful dialogue over real differences. It has been well received by members of both religious communities and it represents a way forward beyond ignoring each other, or worse, demonizing and misrepresenting each other.
