This text is an attempt to explore the methods of the liberal Christian tradition, along with what this tradition has to say about certain fundamental questions, particularly those pertaining to the nature and reality of God and the implications for human life of any answers that might be given. To explore the fundamental questions about the nature and reality of God this book follows seven steps. The first two seteps look at where to begin when answering the fundamental questions, while the following steps are an attempt to answer them. Steps three and four explore negative and positive answers to the question "Is God a reality". Step five examines the case for theism, the belief in the God, creator of the universe; while step six looks at the different forms that theism may take. The final step, step seven, concludes the quest for rational answers to fundamental questions.

Review:

'Space does not permit me to do justice to the great richness of detail in Langford's argument... This is a most welcome book which will serve well as a reference for any liberals and modernists out there who are feeling beleaguered in the post-modern times...(Langford) unravels for his readers a "liberal orthodoxy" which would be eminently preachable in any enquiring parish...this is a theology for the twenty-first century that could well still be being read at the turn of the next.' Reviews in Religion and Theology '[Readers] will welcome what is a balanced and persuasive engagement of a reasonable orthodoxy with different contemporary outlooks. The aim is to affirm the rational attractiveness of Christian theism... With no dependence on authorities it engages in rational discussion with a tolerance and sensitivity to differing positions that encourages further exploration of the issues. The sustained debate thus offered is remarkly accessible... It is specifically directed to the ordinary intelligent reader, and in this it must readily be recognised to have succeeded... many who have read it once will almost certainly wish to return to parts again, and to use it as a resource book in this field. Time spent with it will be amply justified.' Prospero 'This is a most welcome book which will serve well as a reference for any liberals and modernists out there who are feeling beleaguered in those post-modern times. Its densely packed script is well worth the purchase of a new pair of reading glasses for a comprehensive glimpse into a closely argued rational religious perspective.' Modern Believing
