After the aggression of the God v science debates, Mr Spencer’s book is a gentler, though no less provocative, contribution to the discussion. It is beautifully written, too.

Synopsis

Over the last decade the role of Christianity in the West has come under close, sometimes hostile, scrutiny. During that time, Nick Spencer, Research Director of the Christian think tank Theos, has been at the forefront of the debate, and this book brings together a range of his influential essays, putting forward a well-rounded case for the continuing presence of Christianity in 21st-century public life. They also sound a warning that contemporary liberal secular society risks losing sight of the basis for its deepest values - with the attendant risk that forgetting them leaves little capacity to defend them.
