New Zealander the last Western heretic.
Honest to God By Philip Braithwaite
Issues of faith and its relation to personal freedom are at the forefront of world affairs today and freely spoken about in New Zealand. In the 1960s an article questioning the historical accuracy of the bible and the harm caused by religious fundamentalism, penned by academic Lloyd Geering, caused a storm of controversy and divided public opinion in this country. At the time Geering was Principal of Knox Theological College in Dunedin.
