Slipping The Moorings
A memoir of 50 years of change in church and society as experienced by New Zealand priest and bishop, Richard Randerson CNZM. The book outlines Richard's role as change agent and public advocate on issues such as anti-apartheid, nuclear-free NZ, women in leadership, same-sex relationships, marriage equality, poverty, inequality and socio-economic justice, neo-liberalism, ethics in the public square, inter-faith relationships, contemporary theology (incl. a critique of Richard Dawkins and Lloyd Geering), and the role of the church in public debate.
Over half a century, Richard Randerson CNZM has exercised a ministry at the crossroads of Church and Society. In New Zealand, Australia, England and New York, he has served as industrial chaplain, inner city priest, social justice officer, royal commissioner, bishop and cathedral dean. Now resident in Wellington NZ, Bishop Richard continues to write and speak on matters where faith finds expression in social justice, ethics, and contemporary theology.
