A book that begins 'I am a born-again Christian. I can give a precise day when Christ came to me and began to transform my life with his power and his love ... But I do not believe what born-again Christians are supposed to believe ...' has my full attention from the start - particularly when it's author is one of the most erudite and meticulous theologians and Biblical scholars on the planet. Thankfully, having gained my attention, Professor Ward never loses it. With almost surgical skill he cuts away from those core beliefs enjoined by evangelicals on any who 'come to Christ' all that is not actually Biblical in those beliefs however much we might have thought it to be. The results are refreshing, startling and liberating. I cannot recommend this book highly enough. I wish with all my heart it could (for a start) be put into the hands of anyone training for church ministry and then into the hands of anyone else who takes their faith seriously and is concerned to have (and to be able to give) good and sound reasons for their beliefs. I know from my own experience how what I now see to be wrong or mistaken beliefs about God and what he has done and is going to do can steadily breed a hidden but debilitating distrust of the One we are called to love with all heart and mind and soul and strength. This book is the remedy.

I got fed up with reading the Gospel according to Darwin. Schoolboy-like, well schooled, `I understand that now Sir'. And start it out with a `big bang'. That is just false, and unchristian, to believe all that evolution rubbish. About half way through I was almost going to put the book down and stop reading as it was so boring, but it picked up a lot in the second half. Apart from trashing the Genesis account of creation, there were some good ideas presented.
I was interested in the idea that the `substitution' atonement as like some sort of blood sacrifice was an idea of Calvin. I've never really accepted the idea that Jesus was some sort of sacrifice to God, to appease a wrathful Yahweh. The idea presented here, is that Jesus was just being obedient to God, all the way, including losing his own life, if that's what it took. Jesus was a sort of Paschal lamb, as said by John the Baptist, a new Passover and central to a new covenant. The idea that there is a clear distinction between fundamentalist and evangelical was a good point to make. And the argument is well made out, that there is a load of stuff in the old testament which has been `sublated' by new theology/philosophy. This fact it ignored by `fundys'.

There was a lot in the book which I don't agree with and I think the author is just wrong, similar I suppose, in the way that he thinks that the fundys have got it all wrong. The author believes in `universalism', which is a waky Catholic idea; that everyone is saved, regardless as to whether they accept Christ or repent or anything. I don't believe that.
I believe what it says in John's gospel, that a man must be born again, and that no one comes to the Father except through Christ. Unlike others in the liberal wing, this author has not become an outright heretic.
