The use of God in any moral debate is so problematic as to be almost worthless. We can argue whether this or that alleged claim emanated from God, but surely it is better to leave God out of the argument altogether and find strong human reasons for supporting the systems we advocate.

Now published with a new afterword by the author, in Godless Morality, Richard Holloway offers a sensible and practical approach to keeping religion out of ethics. This is a refreshing, courageous and human-centred justification for contemporary morality.

Review:

"A passionate, provocative and common sense challenge to easy cant." (The Observer)

"Lucid, convincing and manifestly compassionate" (Mary Warnock)

"A book of morals for our brave new world, by a very wise man indeed. Inspiring. Fascinating. Full of hope" (Fay Weldon)

"This is a courageous book for a bishop to write, and everything it says about morality is right and true" (Literary Review)

"His conclusions are refreshing . . . a brave and scholarly book" (Observer)

Book Description:

A fascinating and thoughtful-provoking exploration of human morality from the Sunday Times bestselling author of Leaving Alexandria
