There has never been one truth, despite what people claim. Theological ideas have waxed and waned through history, taking conflicting turns with changing leaders, worldviews and political forces. This fast-paced, lay-friendly book, backed by serious, inquisitive scholarship, follows this maze, shining a spotlight into dark corners and dusty shelves to observe ideas silenced and others declared eternal. As many people walk away from churches that are unwilling to face the big questions, this book offers readers permission to think for themselves.

“Val Webb has done it again - bringing God-talk out of both the Academy and the Church; and into the everyday. We are all theologians - God is in our midst and we do not need permission to express what that means to us. This is a book of liberation in that it allows each one of us to 'do our own theology' - to express what we mean by 'God' and not leave it to the ecclesiastical or scholastic authorities to make up our minds for us. Moreover, as Webb argues, theology has always been what ordinary people declare 'from their heart' about someone/something beyond themselves. This is a brave and challenging book that puts God back in the midst of people - where God belongs!” Rev Dr Nigel Leaves, Canon of St John's Cathedral, Brisbane
