Wrestling With God

Bridget Williams Books

Wrestling With God tells the story of the man who came to personify New Zealand’s debates over the role and meaning of religious belief in increasingly secular age.

In the public eye ever since his famed heresy trial in 1967, Lloyd Geering describes his journey from a Depression era childhood, through working as a young Presbyterian minister, to becoming Victoria University’s foundation professor of religious studies and a bestselling author.

Showing the rigorous commitment to truth and concern for others that have characterised his work, Geering also sets out his views on the spiritual life of Western culture in the early twentieth-first century, and the centrality of the human relationship with an endangered planet.
