Nicholas Lash's new collection of essays exposes the crisis in our thinking about God which is at the root of our misunderstandings and mistakes about science and politics, ethics and economics, life and death.
Opening with a devastating critique of Richard Dawkins, he goes on to discuss the `impossibility of atheism', disentangle faith and reason, retrieve the legacy of the Second Vatican Council, and - amongst many other delights - offer sparkling insights into Diderot and Joseph Conrad.
Theology for Pilgrims exhibits Nicholas Lash's characteristic exuberance, combativeness and wit, and shows again his unrivalled ability to make the reader `come to see the point about Jesus'.
