Regional Variations (2)

A series of four talks
3-The Christian Faith and Liberal Values
by Canon Charles Raven
Canon Raven takes up some of the points made last week by Sir William Hamilton Fyfe about the reasons why liberal values teem to be losing their hold over the people of our generation. He examines these reasons and shows that they are iargely out of date, indeed that a return to Christian standards is beginning. This should involve acceptance of the Christian faith and the renewal of energy and unity in the Christian Church. Canon Raven is himself a liberal theologian and has made notable contributions to the understanding of the relation between science and religion. He brings this wide knowledge to bear on the intricate problem of the relation between Christian and liberal values.
