Alice Thomas Ellis is a celebrated British novelist and columnist. As a polemicist she has often hit the headlines in her attacks on the liberalizing tendencies of Church leaders and their obsession with political correctness.

In this highly readable collection of magazine columns, Thomas Ellis argues that disillusion with organized religions stems from Church leaders and theologians who water down the essentials of the Christian faith. Their obsession with being 'relevant' means they have flung out the essentials. Her writing is witty, acerbic and compelling.
