GOD IN US
A Case for Christian Humanism
Anthony Freeman read chemistry and then theology at Oxford University and was ordained in 1972. When God In Us was first published in 1993 he was dismissed from his parish for contravening church teaching, but he remains a priest in the Church of England. Since 1994 he has been managing editor of the Journal of Consciousness Studies and lectures and writes on theology and consciousness. His published work includes the books Gospel Treasure (1999), The Volitional Brain (co-edited 1999) and Consciousness: A Guide to the Debates (ABC Clio: 2003).
'brilliantly lucid, clear, common-sense and to-the-point style' Philosophy Now 'this discussion must help both believers and enquirers to a deeper understanding of their religious impulses' Epworth Review 'a brave and very well-written book' The Freethinker ‘Anthony Freeman is asking exactly the questions that the Christianity of the twenty-first century needs to be asking. I find myself admiring his courage, his honesty and his incredible willingness to be vulnerable. I am drawn deeply to the integrity of his personal struggle. . . . Those who are familiar with my work must surely know that . . . I come to quite different conclusions. [Yet] Anthony Freeman’s is a life we need to honour, and a message we need to hear.’
