Following the very successful Seminar evening last Weds,  Perceptions of Christianity From People of Different Faiths by Richard Tetlow is now in the library, Category I  This is a personal, searching and positive book. Richard Tetlow sees mutual, loving relationships as a priority for human well-being in our British multifaith society. He challenges traditional Christian theology, asking questions in search of meaning, sincere faith and honest personal experience, both religious and non-religious and seeks recognition of unity and diversity of all. Finally, he suggests a way forward. Maureen B
