Can we talk about the God of traditional religiion in a world shaped by Copernicus, Galileo, Newton, Darwin and Freud? How do we tell the Christ story without the doctrine of orignal sin? What does incarnation mean? What is the basis of ethics? How do we pray? Can we still believe in Life after death? What is the meaning of miracles
