This is the nearest Sydney Carter ever got to writing an autobiography. Printed in note book style with many illustrations, Carter gives a powerful testimony to the value of honest religious enquiry, unencumbered by doctrinal definition or credal straitjacket. The first sentence of the book is typical: 'This is the exploded ruin of a book I failed to write'. Ostensibly, "Rock of Doubt" is a book about worship - a subject he was well qualified to write about as author of some of the most powerful hymns and expressions of worship in the English language. 'I am the Lord of the Dance' - 'One More Step along the way I go'. 'Once I began to ask what it was that Christians had to communicate and whether it was true or not, I was in trouble. That is when the book blew up and questions that I dreaded now came flying through the air. What did I really think of Jesus as compared to the Buddha, Socrates or even his own follower St Francis of Assisi? What exactly does 'believe in' really mean? In sum, the power of this book lies in one sentence 'Trust the truth and keep on digging'. This book therefore ranks as a classic of its kind - along with H.A. Williams' book "The True Wilderness" and the writing of Simone Weil, here is the writing of a man fired up with a passion for the truth.
