From the Revd Tony Whatmough
Sir, — I am a liberal (or is that progressive?) Christian; so I was pleased to read Canon Ashenden’s review of Ian Bradley’s Grace, Order, Openness and Diversity (Books, 11 February), in which the reviewer tells me that I “cannot or will not, grasp the central core of the Hebrew revelation: the holiness of the Godhead”.
I have taken “O worship the Lord on the beauty of holiness” as my tagline for more than 20 years; so I stand corrected. On the other hand, I have never told anyone what they can or cannot, will or will not, believe; and I find sin a perpetual problem.
