Religion and Values in 21st Century Britain

Innbundet / 2015 / Engelsk
This book offers a reliable and up-to-date guide to the religious situation of Britain today. It provides an overview of the main developments of religion in Britain in recent years and considers the underlying causes of the shift in popular stereotypes of religion in Britain. Linda Woodhead explains religious change from the perspective of the communities involved, as well as by setting it in the context of secular opposition, government policy, and global change. The book explores the conflicts, controversies and `extremism' which have grabbed the headlines, and offers an analysis of their causes, consequences and wider significance.
