In Part One, 'Questions of Faith and Hope', Richard Harries considers some profound and potentially devastating objections to religious belief, as expressed in landmarks of modern literature - among them the novels of Dostoyevsky, the plays of Beckett and the poetry of Hopkins.Part Two, 'Questions of Peace and Justice', examines some of the challenges faced by the Church as it seeks to relate Christian principles to the economic and social order. Here are brilliant reflections on issues of power politics, human rights, birth control, the welfare system, and business ethics - all of them written with the verve and incisiveness for which Richard Harries is so well known.'Has Religion a Future?' is the final question he addresses. Whether or not you agree with his answer, this is a book that cannot fail to stimulate deeper and more responsible thinking about the role and relevance of Christianity as we approach the third millenium.
