Eric mascall was a fine non-oxymoronic Anglican theologian and as unlike
Bish spong as possible.
For all those here who have followed recent discussion on Peter's
aquaplaning can I recommend his "The Secularisation of Christianity"
published in 1965 as a response to Robinson, van Buren, and John Knox (a nt
theologian of the 1960s!) His chapters on science and "fact and the Gospels
" are especially good.
