In this passionate and heartfelt book Richard Holloway interrogates the traditional ways of understanding the Bible. He liberates the power of the great Christian stories from their sometimes antiquated settings, and reveals the essence of Jesus's teachings. In doing so, he shows that the challenge of Jesus remains revolutionary, humane and of immense contemporary importance.
Doubts and Loves is a radical but accessible work of scholarship - a blueprint for a new kind of faith, which offers spiritual hope to millions across the world who feel that the Church has lost its way.
