A re-examination of the state of Christianity from the Sunday Times bestselling author of Waiting for the Last Bus and Leaving Alexandria.

In this passionate and heartfelt book, Richard Holloway interrogates the traditional ways of understanding the Bible. In doing so he demonstrates the power of the great Christian stories as they apply today, away from their sometimes antiquated settings, providing a blueprint which takes the core teachings of the Christian past and invigorates them with renewed power for today's world.
