NEW PUBLICATION FROM
And is it True? - a new book by the Bishop of Meath and Kildare.
Bishop Richard Clarke's new book, and is it True? Truth, God and No-Man's Land, has recently been published by Dominican Publications. It is a book about faith, and about the need to search for faith with ruthless honesty, daring to take risks in the process. Utilising the metaphor of no-mans' land as a place of vulnerability where truth and God are to be found, Bishop Clarke calls his readers away from the entrenchment of facile certainties.
From reviews of and is it True?:
'For my money Bishop Clarke is a new kind of bishop… The believing Christian will be called by this book to attempt theology, to commit himself to Scripture, Tradition and Reason to undergird his twentieth-century faith. Man the searcher will be confronted here with the mystery of God as he lives in the midst of unbelief.' Donal Flanagan
'There is a future for the church that Richard Clarke envisages and values.' Andrew Furlong
'It is quite some time since I have enjoyed a book as stimulating, challenging and intellectually satisfying as this.' Seán Fagan
And is it True? costs £7.99. It is available from Dominican Publications in Dublin, and from other bookshops, including APCK and the Sunday School Society for Ireland. ISBN 1-871552-75-3
