About the Author: The Rev. Dr. Andrew Pratt

I want to be able to explore faith in the same way that my scientific probing enabled me to make new discoveries. The root of the problem is that we never fully know God. And then we declaim and so often judge, we codify and the spirit of God is diminished and emasculated. Somehow the church needs to reclaim that prophetic spirit that can enable new adventures of faith, new discoveries of the unfathomable grace and freedom of God. At their best hymn poets have done just that.
