Letter: Proud of our rave in the nave

Sir: One is saddened by the charges of intellectual dishonesty levelled at a fellow Christian by the Rev Guy A Davies ("Misguided liberal gloss on the Bible", Letters, 12 February). Mr Davies refers to the substitutionary death of Christ as if it is the only interpretation of this event which is valid.

Many Christians who do not share Mr Davies' more dogmatic views nevertheless have had their lives enhanced, given purpose, even transformed by accepting initially the hypothesis that God (however he/she is described) uniquely expressed "himself" in Jesus and took the initiative in making possible harmony between God and humankind, harmony within ourselves and harmony between people. Mr Davies, please do not write us off as dishonest.
