Review by Kyle Trowbridge forthcoming.


Written between 2005 and 2014, George Newlands's essays span a wide array of subjects, from Christology and the doctrine of God to human rights and Christian spirituality. Coming from within the liberal tradition of theology, these essays were written and delivered in a variety of contexts, from colleges to churches, on both sides of the Atlantic. In Spirit of Liberality, Newlands displays his own brand of theology, marked by its kindness and erudition, in his approach to the vastness of human experience.
