Item description for Honest to God by Robinson...

The republication of John Robinson's 1963 volume, Honest To God, invites us to reread this controversial work with fresh eyes in the light of the many trends of this forty-year period toward greater plurality, globalization, and inclusivity in cultural and religious thought. Such a rereading will allow Robinson's volume to be seen as one that called, not for the discarding of Christian faith in God and Christ, but for a clarification of what is essential to that faith.

Publishers Description

Reviews - What do customers think about Honest to God?

honest to god  Jan 5, 2008
This book is very intense. It is written on a college level, by a man who served as Dean of a College at one time. This book has been dubbed controversial and disturbing. At the time the book was published (1963) John A. T. Robinson was Bishop of Woolwich, England, and had formerly served as Dean of Clare College, Cambridge and as Chaplain of Wells Theological College. Mr. Robinson believes the church in our time is now being called to nothing less than a revolution that will question many of the basic assumptions which Christians have held in the past. This book will be enticing to people who loves challanges for deeper thinking.
A Mind Stretch  Oct 6, 2007
For anyone who is a little tired of the old explanations given by the churches about God and existence, this little book written in the sixties is thought provoking and stretches the mind to places where you never thought it would. This book was way ahead of its time in history. A stimulating read.
Honest to God  Aug 23, 2007
This book is "must reading" for anyone who has even a passing interest in Christianity.
A man with great ideas . . .   Jun 2, 2006
Robinson's career suffered because of the publication of this book. However, since its publication, Honest to God has become a cornerstone of progressive and liberal Christianity. It has inspired men like John Spong and had been a great building block for non-theistic Christianity.

Much of the work is direct quotation of Tillich and Bonhoeffer. Nonetheless, Robinson seems to summarize their ideas very well and even does a decent job expanding upon these ideas. (I feel that I should note, though it was written for laymen, it is still difficult to read unless one really loves the subject matter.)

Many of his ideas would be considered heresy by many fundamentalists and evangelicals. If he were not clergy, he would have probably been immediately dismissed. But his title gives his work a profound level of credibility.

Robinson was a brave man and so were his ideas. Great ideas are always condemned at first, then eventually accepted, then treated as if they always were. I believe that one day, through the works of new progressive Christians, we will reach a place where the ideas Robinson put worth `always were.'
EVERYBODY READ THIS!!!!  Feb 6, 2006
This book must be read about 5 times to get a lot out of it. Not only is it a excellent book in its own right, and just as pertinent today as when it was written (if not more so), it is also a great introduction to 3 of the most influential Christian thinkers of this century: Tillich, Bonhoeffer, and Bultmann. Robinson has been criticized for not including Barth, and perhaps rightly so, but even without his influence, the book is substantial, especially for one of such brevity. Every chapter is full of insightful observations and important questions which demand to be grappled with. This author does a brilliant job tackling them, inviting the reader to honestly think through them with him. A MUST READ!!!
