Wrestling with God: The Story of My Life
by Lloyd Geering

Paperback, 2006, 271pages, very good condition

Lloyd Geering is one of New Zealand's foremost thinkers, a man of clarity and vision who continues to present new and challenging ideas about the spiritual life of the culture he lives in. His life almost spans the twentieth century, and his stories of growing up in the Depression, cycling trips around the country, and a lively but impoverished student life all embellish the historical record of that time. Embarking on life as a newly-wed young minister, he was left suddenly bereft by his wife's death; he writes movingly of his work as a solitary young father, caring for two small children with the support of his Dunedin parishioners. Later, he became a university teacher, first at Knox College in Dunedin, then at Victoria University in Wellington. His second marriage, and the birth of a third child, brought much happiness that forms a backdrop to the public life. This became increasingly controversial as Geering wrote about his changing views of Christianity through the 1960s and 1970s. Joining radical theologicals like Bishop Robinson and John Spong, he became an innovative and challenging voice in the emerging debates about God and religion. His 1966 article 'What Does the Resurrection Mean?' (included in the autobiography) led to the famed heresy trial in 1967. Found innocent, Geering became the foundation professor of religion at Victoria University, and continued a highly successful career as an academic and writer. WRESTLING WITH GOD is a reflective and honest account of one man's personal journey, which is set alongside the momentous changes to Western culture and thought during the twentieth century.
