Religion in Britain evaluates and sheds light on the religious situation in twenty-first century Britain; it explores the country s increasing secularity alongside religion s growing presence in public debate, and the impact of this paradox on Britain s society. * Describes and explains the religious situation in twenty-first century Britain * Based on the highly successful Religion in Britain Since 1945 (Blackwell, 1994) but extensively revised with the majority of the text re-written to reflect the current situation * Investigates the paradox of why Britain has become increasingly secular and how religion is increasingly present in public debate compared with 20 years ago * Explores the impact this paradox has on churches, faith communities, the law, politics, education, and welfare
