Is Nothing Sacred?

Don Cupitt

Fordham University Press

This chapter outlines the author's response to Rowan Williams's published writings and states that he is a religious symbolist who takes his symbols seriously, and a doctrinal rather than a philosophical theologian. The chapter talks about how he clings to realism. This chapter doubts that there is no significant difference between the author and Rowan Williams. The chapter demonstrates Williams's vestigial and unsupported attachment to realism and urges him to change his side. Consequently the chapter emphasizes the awareness of Williams's writings and simply says that it is necessary for believers to not deceive themselves but instead to know and understand clearly what their own believing is.

Keywords:   writings, symbolism, doctrinal, theologians, realism, vestigiality
