The Ground Between,
This review is from: Christian Atheist: Belonging without Believing (Paperback)
One of the best things about Brian Mountford's book, Christian Atheist, is that it is as relevant to people with a religious faith as to those who don't believe in God at all: it is accessible to both ends of the spectrum.
As a church-going Christian with many unanswered questions and quite a few doubts, I found the book extremely helpful. In particular, the significance of religious language as metaphor, the importance of belonging to a Christian community and the value of Christianity as guidance for moral behaviour resonated strongly with me. The writer's assertion that many people who adhere to a belief in God are coming from the same place with the same questions as the Christian Atheist is both reassuring and challenging. This thoughtful and stimulating book provides an opportunity for believers and atheists to examine their differences and develop an understanding of each other's principles and values.
