Product Description


`Excellent value - well within the reach of student grants.'Alan Robertshaw, University of Lancaster

Religion in Modern Britain bears all the hallmarks of Bruce's writing: it is concise, carefully structured and admirably clear. There can be no doubt about what Bruce is saying ... Anyone who reads through these chapters will acquire useful and accurate information about the nature of religion in modern Britain. (Church Times)

Bruce writes as a sociologist and he treats us to a fair share of the statistics that are the tools of his craft. (Times Higher Education Supplement)

It is a concise and highly readable account of the recent history and current state of the major religious groups in Britain, with clear and non-judgemental summaries of their central beliefs and traditions. (Times Higher Education Supplement)

The result of Bruce's exercise is an accessible and comprehensive work of reference. While not exactly compulsive it is certainly essential reading. (Times Educational Supplement)

This book contains valuable information for the non-specialist ... a useful and illuminating portrait. (The Christian Century)

A wide-ranging and detailed, yet very readable, summary of the place of religion in social terms in this country today. (The Reader)

This book belongs to a series committed to providing authoritative introductions to aspects of the social structure of modern Britain...written for a generation of students who may be as unfamiliar with the nature of religious differences in Britain as with the tools of sociological enquiry. For the uninitiated it provides a good and reliable introduction. - The Rev Professor Leslie Francis. Church of England Newspaper. 7/3/1997.

Format: Paperback
A must read book for anyone doing a Theology Degree. This book gives a good insight into secularisation and an argument against Davie's theory about "believing without belonging"
