At the turn of the Millennium, bell hooks wrote "Nowadays it is fashionable to talk about race or gender; the uncool subject is class". Drawing from a variety of sources, experiences, and intersections of identity, this book addresses the relationship between church and class in 21st Century Britain, exploring how to build intersectional solidarity and struggle for justice and the common good. If, as hooks wrote, it is uncool to talk about class, it seems that productive discussions about Church and class might be even less palatable. Writing from their own experiences of class and other intersections of identity, contributors respond to this long silence, offering new and progressive insights on this topic and how it relates to numerous pressing issues for our time and contexts. With an initial focus on how these issues relate to the established Church of England, the book also contains reflections from other traditions to broaden the perspective. Contributions from Ruth Harley, Rajiv Sidhu, Katherine Long, Selina Stone, Sally Mann, Victoria Turner and Eve Parker. Foreword by Anthony Reddie
