    Faith And Politics After Christendom

    Product Description

    By definition, one of the most integral issues raised by the idea of post-Christendom is the relationship between church and state. For the best part of 1700 years, the institutional church has enjoyed a hand-in-hand relationship with government. Indeed, the church has often been seen as the glue that has stopped political systems from disintegrating into anarchy. But in this post-Christendom era the relation of Church and State has weakened to the point where the church can no longer claim to play any significant part in Government.

    As part of the post-Christendom series this book will offer perspectives and resources for Christians and churches no longer at the centre of society but on the margins. It invites a realistic and hopeful response to challenges and opportunities awaiting the church in twenty-fi rst century politics. In particular, the book suggests that where it has previously defended the social order, the church now has a brand new opportunity to exercise its prophetic role, challenging injustice, shaking institutions and undermining some of the central values and norms on which society is built.

    Faith and Politics After Christendom

    This is an accessible discussion of an important debate, which is being conducted at a variety of levels at the present moment. The deconstruction of the traditional understanding of the relationship of the Church to the political system in the West is a welcome contribution to this ongoing debate. The appeal to ‘anarchy’ should not dismay more conservative readers as Jonathan Bartley uses this term to make an appeal to Gospel values. A good read, which most thinking believers will find beneficial for their understanding of having faith the contemporary context.
