Death Of Christian Britain

Full Product Description

Is Christianity in Britain nearing extinction? Is the decline in Britain emblematic of the fate of Western Christianity? "The Death of Christian Britain" uses the latest techniques to offer new formulations of religion and secularization and explores what it has meant to be 'religious' and 'irreligious' during the last 200 years. It challenges the generally held view that secularization has been a long and gradual process beginning with the industrial revolution, and instead proposes that it has been a catastrophic and abrupt cultural revolution starting in the 1960s.This second edition includes a new chapter that repositions the book's argument in light of criticism and new research. It addresses the reactions to the treatment of the 'old' Christian culture of modern Britain, the sixties in religious history, gender and the mutation of Christianity and demonstrates the validity of the Death of Christian Britain in understanding contemporary religion and culture. Topical and controversial, "The Death of Christian Britain" is a bold and original work that will bring some uncomfortable truths to light.
