Description

This study is comprised of 20 essays which survey the state of religion in Britain. Focusing on Scotland, Wales and Northern Ireland as well as on England, this text covers not only the mainstream Christian religions but also black-led churches, the folk-religionists, the minor sects and new religious movements. The book also recognizes the multi-faith dimension of modern Britain, and includes chapters on the Jewish, Hindu, Sikh, Muslim and Buddhist communities. It takes an overall perspective on issues of church and state, the "troubles' of Northern Ireland, attitudes towards women, the "permissive society", and secularization.
