Methodist Minister, Author
Why is someone with a title like mine (Revd. Dr.) sharing in the founding of an International Society for Heresy Studies? The simple answer is that the reverent academic appraisal of heresy, unbelief and atheism fuels my understanding of my work as a ‘professional Christian.’ The church I belong to and the local congregation I lead must learn how to be a faithful part of the society, culture and context in which they are set; they must have integrity and stand to reason. But there is more to it than that.
