Honest to God was a recommendation from a talented and insightful acquaintance. When she heard that I was going through a spiritual rediscovery in my life, she immediately recommended this book. I suspect she may have been referring to the book written by Bill Hybels by the same name but the Robinson book was a fascinating read for me! John A T Robinson was a Bishop in the Anglican church who began to question some of the religious activities of the church. Many of the stately and ornate traditions of the Anglican church seemed far removed from modernity and he wondered out loud if perhaps the church was stuck in traditions that had little or nothing to do with true worship of God. Robinson's questioning of the long standing traditions of his church is where my own journey intersects with his work and at times in reading the book I felt he was writing directly for me (though for the record, the book was written well before I was even born!)
