Most current popular Christian theology books tend to focus on the defects of either fundamentalism or liberalism. The authentic 'Good News' gospel of Christ is currently sandwiched between these two main rival, distortive and reductive interpretations. Here, M.H. Davis suggests that neither fundamentalism nor liberalism equate with the radically challenging and empowering gospel of risk. As such, he offers a fresh slant on the current debate as to the power and scope of post-modern Christianity, and considers how these western Christian extrapolations square or do not square with the radical risk-taking nature of Christ's incarnate ministry. The book's purpose is to act as a catalyst to provoke people into the realisation that Christianity does not have to be an either-or choice between fundamentalism and liberalism.
For several years, M.H. Davis has been a Methodist local preacher in Cambridgeshire. He has also worshipped at Lutheran and Anglican churches. He has a fascination for the links between poetry, art, literature, psychology, philosophy and theology.
