THE New Morality

Modern Believing (2013), 54, (2), 142–149.

Abstract

In chapter 6 of Honest to God, John Robinson adopts Joseph Fletcher's situation ethics as a moral counterpart to the theology of Paul Tillich, Dietrich Bonhoeffer, and Rudolf Bultmann advanced earlier in his book. This article engages Robinson's attempt to be honest and radical, and notes problems in both areas. It suggests Robinson, often accused of being too honest and too radical, could, with benefit, be more honest and more radical. It concludes by noting how seeking to be honest and radical has shaped one highly-visible church in the last generation.
