Letter from Dr John Baker, The Bishop of Salisbury to Michael Roll (March 3, 1983): The Suppression of Knowledge

John Baker comments on Michael Roll's pamphlet "The Suppression of Knowledge".
In his letter, Dr Baker writes:
"There are quite a number of detailed historical points with which I would wish to express disagreement simply at a factual level, but about the main thesis I find myself very largely at one with you."


”but the substance of your criticisms is obviously sound and something that quite a number of us have said from within the Christian Church from time to time. The hard fact of the matter is that the Christian Church has strayed a very long way from the kind of religious view of life and the guidance for human conduct that Jesus himself supplied, and I would entirely agree that there is no hope for the Churches unless they try to get back to what their Founder taught."
