About the Author

Mary Warnock is by professional training a philosopher. She has also been a prominent figure in education, first as Headmistress of Oxford High School and then as Mistress of Girton College, Cambridge. No stranger to controversy, hastening the death of her terminally-sick husband and her views on teenage abortion are but two issues for which she has recently hit the headlines. She is the author of a number of books, most notably An Intelligent Person's Guide to Ethics.

Reviews

Attended Hay Festival 2011
Baroness Warnock's book is an excellent antidote to religious complacency.--John Hbgood "The American Spectator "
'This sentinel of a secular state again takes up her post ... should give a minister, or a Miliband, plenty of piquant food for thought.' --Sanford Lakoff
'A fascinating contribution to one of the great debates of the day' --Sanford Lakoff
'It is the patient accumulation of cases, histories and arguments in this book that is eventually more impressive than any mere polemic. We are shown the sovereignty of careful, compassionate, rich moral thought over law, over politics, and even, as Plato saw, over religion. In the end it is indeed dishonest - even dishonest to God - to think otherwise.' --Sanford Lakoff
'Mary Warnock is one of the best-known philosophers in Britain. Few people could read this book without admiration for her style and scholarship.' --Sanford Lakoff
'An excellent antidote to religious complacency.' --Sanford Lakoff
'This is a swashbuckling and iconoclastic book: Mary Warnock at her best.'--Sanford Lakoff
'This is a wide-ranging book that covers the most diverse of subjects from philosophy and theology to music and church architecture written by someone who has reflected deeply and systematically on these issues over the course of a long life.'--Sanford Lakoff
'Plenty of Christian readers will find Dishonest to God" challenging, but it deserves a close reading for its subtle appreciation of the complexities in the issues it tackles.'--Sanford Lakoff
