  • The remarkable true story of the first heresy trial in a hundred years in the Church of Ireland. This is the story of Andrew Furlong, the Anglican Dean of Clonmacnoise, Ireland, who in April 2002 came before a heresy trial for denying the divinity of Christ. The trial came about because he was honest about what many clergy believe but are afraid to say - that the Bible cant be taken as a literal statement of fact. Andrew Furlong sees himself as belonging to an evolving religious tradition. We create our own religions in response to the changing ways we understand the universe that is our home. Our ideas of God and our own identity evolve with developing understanding. As well as providing a fascinating account of Andrew Furlongs ordeal, as he was forced to leave the Churchs ministry after thirty years of service, the book also tells the story of how and why a very human Jewish figure, the historic Jesus, was transformed into Christ, Saviour and Living Lord.
