On many Saturdays in the year Edward Norman writes a column in the Daily Telegraph entitled Meditation. With pellucid clarity, Norman expounds central truths of the Christian religion in a way that is both traditional but entirely radical. It is, after all, the truth that sets us free. Here is a new collection of Norman's Meditation columns, a sequel to Continuum's highly successful book Out of the Depths. In this new book however Norman has written a brilliant new introduction, worthy of a Crockford's preface' in which he castigates reductionists and woolly minded liberals. The truths of Christianity are eternal verities. Orthodoxy is the highest form of radicalism. Norman has an entirely loyal following and it is substantial. But as the Christian Churches tear themselves apart on issues such as gay clergy and single sex marriages, Norman's message will be increasingly understood and appreciated.
