In this new volume, Lloyd Geering presents previously unpublished talks and lectures which will interest a wider audience than was originally intended.
The first examines the relevance of Christian perspectives in a post-Christian global era, and asks whether they can help solve the massive problems now facing the world. The second part focuses more closely on theology, and includes Lloyd’s wry account of his so-called ‘heresy trial’ in the 1960s.
As one of New Zealand’s outstanding public intellectuals, Lloyd Geering’s thoughts are always topical and thought-provoking. Given recent tragic events in New Zealand and in other parts of the world, his essays on ‘Tolerance and our global future’ and ‘The destructive potential of fundamentalism’ have heightened relevance today.
