Millions of people living in the so-called "Christian West" long for a thoroughly modern, intellectually defensible, emotionally satisfying faith which will be unashamedly religious and spiritual in its commitment, but frankly secular in its relevance to this world and this age. Of such is the republic of heaven.

A wonderful repository of religious understanding and a liberal theologian's delight. ~ , Modern Believing
David Boulton's new book fascinatingly shows how a radical perspective on religion can bring together the religious and the humanist...An engaged and cogent expression of the human/divine vision in modern thought. ~ David Hart, Westar Fellow
Disarmingly honest and beautifully written..With clarity and insight he interprets today's confusing religious situation, spurring us on to new visions of the future. ~ Lloyd Geering, Author of Tomorrow's God
Readers of this lively and stimulating book will encounter a crusading zeal imbued with both historical perspective and a bracing, unsentimental determination to assert that human spirituality, in all its fullness of transcendent potential, is sufficient to redeem us from the despair of nihilism and the banality of evil. ~ , Universalist
A very readable spiritual autobiography, a stimulating read. ~ , Faith and Freedom
Written with clarity and sensitivity, The Trouble With God will make sense to a lot of people who might describe themselves as lapsed atheists, doubtful about Christian doctrine but believing that there must be more to life than a purely materialist journey concerned solely with survival, sufficiency and self-aggrandisement. I recommend it to all who, whatever their personal faith may be, think deeply about the meaning of our existence and want to be stimulated and refreshed. ~ Tony Benn, Former Cabinet minister
The great thing about this book is that it is exactly like its author: it is affectionate, sane, learned and extremely funny. The next best thing to taking David Boulton home for the weekend is to buy it. ~ Richard Holloway, Former Bishop of Edinburgh
David Boulton is a highly entertaining writer, with a great gift of being funny and serious at once. You'll love it! ~ Don Cupitt, Fellow, Emmanuel College, Cambridge
