Ever since it served as a chapter heading in Hones,. to God 'the new morality' has been a household phrase. For most people it suggests permissiveness or worse. But Dr Robinson was pleading for a criterion of response and responsibility far more * searching than that'of code morality, as his subsequent lectures Christian Morals Today made clear. These lectures are reprinted in this book, which will take its place alongside his earlier essays On Being the Church in the World, now available as a Pelican. The theme running through this new collection is the meaning of authentic Christian freedom in relation to the moral and political issues of our contemporary society and to the thinking and structures*of the*Church.

John A T Robinson

John Arthur Thomas Robinson was an English New Testament scholar, author and the Anglican Bishop of Woolwich. He was a lecturer at Trinity College, Cambridge, and later Dean of Trinity College until his death in 1983 from cancer. Robinson was considered a major force in shaping liberal Christian theology. Along with Harvard theologian Harvey Cox, he spearheaded the field of secular theology and, like William Barclay, he was a believer in universal salvation.
