God Outside the Box Paperback
The Bishop of Oxford listens to and answers questions about God and Christianity from people of our time, when spirituality is widespread, but is often critical of religion and Christianity.
He deals with such questions as: religion keeps people immature, Christianity is anti-life, religion is divisive and stuck in the past, closing with the greatest challenge of all, why is there suffering?

Review by othurtle
Objections to Christianity understood and answered. He addresses it to the many people who are still spiritual without being Christian. He takes a refreshing new approach, not starting with whether Jesus was God or the truth of the bible, but answering the moral objections to Christianity. God is despotic, chauvinist, shows favouritism, torments his enemies, and craves worship. Religion adds to the problems being stuck in the past, and divisive, keeping people immature and anyway Christianity too is just for wimps. It is anti life, and goes on about sin, whereas we are now having a good time and don't need all that misery. He is perhaps a little too apologetic but given that one of his chapters is about not saying too much he is at least following his own instructions.
