Browsing Posts in God as mother

My thesis which was accepted by the University of Glasgow in 1981 has been, I just discovered, digitised and is available here: http://theses.gla.ac.uk/2080/

I have just finished a five-lecture series at Asia Pacific Theological Seminary in Baguio in the Philippines, with the title “God as Mother?”. The experience has been great fun, with friendly interested and interesting staff, and students who engaged well with the ideas and were not afraid to question. Even if I had had no […]

Do please participate in helping me to make my latest experiment in online publication work better. I want to explore how authors and readers can engage more and at greater depth through using online communications. My book Not Only a Father is not only available as a paperback on Amazon, but also the full text […]

At last the paperback copies of Not Only a Father, and not only the online edition, are available. Now the hard work of getting it reviewed and even harder work of getting people to discuss the online discussable edition remain :) The book traces the biblical and theological reasons why we need to talk of […]
