Editorial Reviews


"Lovely book... generous and sensible. All [Oppenheimer's] work is marked by clarity of thought, generousity of spirit, and a very uncommon common sense." David Atkinson, Church Times."Oppenheimer's argument is never anything less that rigorous and thorough ... a work of the utmost maturity." Steven Platten."Another example of [Oppenheimer's] lucid, elegant prose in which every word, sentence,paragraph and chapter is positioned to commend her case ... one of her objects has been to leave us to struggle with further details and with the elaboration of the framework from our own points of view, to be shared with and developed in conversation with a variety of sources." Ann Loades, Studies in Christian Ethics."The width of reference is wide and the treatment rigorous. The appeal seems to be more directly to fellow Christians but readers will benefit from the author's perspective." Scientific and Medical Network Review."Oppenheimer addresses a very broad range of issues ... interesting themes" Tim Murphy, Political Studies Review."Helen Oppenheimer offers wise and fortifying counsel. This book is subtle, generous, positive, faithful, rigorous, and accessible" Allan Doig (Chaplain), The Brown Book, The Journal of Lady Margaret Hall, Oxford University (April 2009).
