Synopsis

This book tells the story of Keith’s restless journey of faith, from his early days at Prairie Bible Institute in Canada, through positive encounters with Anglican evangelicalism in Australia, and into a more restful and sustainable faith. Two significant landmarks on his journey were doctoral studies on American philosopher Alvin Plantinga and the discovery that the Noah Flood story is probably best understood as myth, with implications for how the Bible can be read and appropriated in a 21st century world. The book charts a way forward for people who feel they have little choice but to choose between fundamentalism and jettisoning their faith altogether.

A Restless Faith
March 13th, 2013
Excellent book detailing a journey of faith. Keith shows how his fundamentalist upbringing was challenged by his introduction to the evangelicalism of Sydney Anglicans. Their attempts to be intellectually rigorous, more open to the searchings of modern scientific and critical thinking was convincing for a while. However in time the cracks began to appear. The manipulative nature of power broking in the Sydney diocese opened his eyes to the limits of Sydney Anglicans' openness to following the truth wherever it leads. An honest, challenging read that show how we can all be alluded by approaches that can turn out to be almost cultic.
