Generosity and the Christian Future
Imprint: Wipf and Stock
'As in his other published works, George Newlands shows here an astonishing command of the theological and other related literature, and sustained good judgment in applying his key criterion of the self-giving costly love of God revealed in Christ and his cross. Newlands is the best sort of liberal--radical and positive, yet balanced and open to dialogue on all sides, with conservatives as well as with humanists and people of other faiths. Pluralism is embraced without surrender of the mainstream tradition. I read this stimulating and wide-ranging book with interest and admiration, and recommend it strongly.'
- Brian Hebblethwaite, University of Cambridge
'This is a powerful book characterized by humor, subtlety, and moral passion. While very learned, it wears its erudition lightly. There are passages of great theological insight, and one chapter of sustained fantasy and humor where an American Baptist minister becomes Pope--except that she is also a woman called Flora and the setting is a space-age Vatican X in Oxford one thousand years after the Reformation.'
-- Peter Sedgwick, Board for Social Responsibility, General Synod of the Church of England
