Keeping faith

Sir: It is to be regretted that in his review of William Charlton's Philosophy and Christ- ian Belief Renford Bambrough perpetuates the myth that today's theologians have abandoned the historic Christian creed. If anything, the opposite is the case. Should he or your readers wish to see some evidence, may I recommend Keeping the Faith (SPCK), a volume of essays written by leading theologians on both sides of the Atlantic to signal the centenary of the publication of Lux Mundi?
