God Created Humanism: the Christian Basis of Secular Values – 2017

Reinventing Liberal Christianity – 2013 

This book argues that there is a good sort of liberal theology, and a bad sort. The good sort’s better. It grasps that Christianity is a cultic tradition – ie. rooted in ritual. (The bad sort is too fond of rational humanism, too neglectful of ritual.) Prof. David Martin: ‘Theo Hobson presents a lively, timely, theologically-informed and historically-grounded argument for the compatibility of sacramental Christianity and the traditions of the liberal state.’ Professor Martyn Percy: ‘A remarkable, wise, and incisive book’. Professor Linda Woodhead: ‘For Christians who appreciate living in a liberal state and despair at “postliberal” theology’s easy dismissal of it, this book is a delight.’
