Freedom and Order

Full Product Description

2011 marked the 400th anniversary of the publication of the King James' Bible and saw a great deal of celebration and comment about the impact of the Bible on British culture.

Much of the story is well-known, such as the Bible's seminal influence on British language and literature, but one aspect - the influence of the Bible on English politics - is largely unknown or ignored. Moreover, when it is not ignored, the Bible's influence on politics is treated as that from which we have escaped, in order that we may enjoy our current freedoms, rather than something that contributed positively to political thought or history.

Freedom and Order by Nick Spencer was published by Hodder & Stoughton in May 2012. The ISBN for Freedom and Order is 9780340996249.

'Nick Spencer ranges stylishly over English history from Saint Augustine's landing in Kent to Saint Tony Blair and beyond, richly documenting how this realm of England was a biblically based culture even before the realm of England was invented. Clarity and learning lightly worn make this book stand out from the herd in this year celebrating King James's contribution to biblical translation.'
