Honest to God, originally published in 1963, has been described as the most talked-about theological work of the twentieth century. Its publication work instigated a passionate debate about the nature of Christian belief and doctrine in the white heat of a secular revolution. It also epitomized the revolutionary spirit of a fresh and challenging way of looking at the world, which, throughout the 1960s, was to bring about the disintegration of established orthodoxies and social, political and theological norms. It articulated the anxieties of a generation who saw these traditional givens as no longer acceptable or necessarily credible. Reissued on the 50th anniversary of the original publication, Honest to God is not only a book that generated controversy and debate in its own time, but a piece of honest theology which continues to inspire many in teir search for credible Christianity in today's world.

About the Author:

Robinson who for several years served as Bishop of Woolwich, England, was Dean of Trinity College, Cambridge.

Review:

Honest to God not only got people talking about their beliefs, it helped a whole generation relocate and rediscover God in some of their deepest experiences. Whatever theological reservations there might be about its theological framework, it proved hugely pastorally helpful-and could do so again today. -- Professor Lord Harries of Pentregarth, former Bishop of Oxford If, as Harold Wilson said, a week is a long time in politics, then this book proves that half a century is a short time in theology and what goes around comes around. John Robinson challenges us again to be bold and honest in confronting the forces of fear and reaction that have hijacked religion in our day. -- Richard Holloway Formerly Bishop of Edinburgh Honest to God changed the face of British Christianity, which during the 1950s had become formal, sleepy, complacent and over-respectable. John Robinson's probing book led some to abandon their faith, some to accept it for the first time and many to dig deeper. 50 years on it has the same impact. --Canon Angela Tilby Christchurch Catherdral, Oxford
