Robinson also has fascinating chapters on prayer on ethics, and a marvelous account of the "worldly holiness" as opposed to "leaving the world."A great book, and I recommend it to anyone searching and questioning their spiritual life.A description of God, not as something separate from us (watching over us, listening to us) but as the ultimate reality (our own eyes, our own voice).Robinson's alternative is to remind us that love is the key to the divine ground of being, and that Jesus was the "man for others" who lived that love.In his embracing the outcasts, condemning the power structures that oppress and exploit, healing the sick, and declaring that all love and forgive each other as equal children of God, Jesus shows us the divine.Like Paul, I have no clue whether this book is currently laughed at by theologians or accepted as an interesting step in the development of modern theology, so I'll just forge ahead and give you my impressions.I spent mu Where I got the book: purchased used on Amazon.
He's saying that modern people simply will not buy Genesis (the book not the group which was not formed until 1967) anymore because they know it was written before science, so you will not get anywhere if you need to convince them that the Earth is really only 4004 years old and the fossils were put there by God to test our faith. So just as St Paul identified the (Old Testament) Law as a stumbling block for Gentiles, JR identifies religion and its adherence to the supernatural as a stumbling block for modern people.
And he talks a lot about love in this chapter, giving me the impression that he was cutting two thousand years of Christian doctrine down to some nebulous form of New Age spirituality. "Jesus never claims to be God, personally: yet he always claims to bring God, completely." Mmmmmmmmmmmkay but if you knock the claim that Jesus is God out of the Christian religion, there's not much left of it.
And then we get to the chapter about Jesus...blimey. The Incarnation is one of those litmus test thingies: if you don't believe in it, your claim to be a Christian is a bit empty.
A LAUGH, A SONG, AND A HAND GRENADEJohn Robinson was a Bishop, no less, and this little hand grenade of a book was published in 1963, and can be bracketed with The Silent Spring (1962), The Feminine Mystique (1963) and Lady Chatterley's Lover (finally published in 1960) – all books which kickstarted the 1960s and made that decade what it became. He is seeing the Church gradually declining, Britain becoming ever more faithless and he wants to rescue Christianity by means of this radical surgery.
To help men through to the conviction about ultimate reality that alone finally matters we may have to discard every image of God – whether of the "one a A LAUGH, A SONG, AND A HAND GRENADEJohn Robinson was a Bishop, no less, and this little hand grenade of a book was published in 1963, and can be bracketed with The Silent Spring (1962), The Feminine Mystique (1963) and Lady Chatterley's Lover (finally published in 1960) – all books which kickstarted the 1960s and made that decade what it became. Three years later, John Lennon in the same vein said Christianity will go. I needn't argue with that; I'm right and I will be proved right.
