Essays on: Edward Leigh on How Britain has Lost its Way; Alexander Boot on Political Correctness; Peter Mullen on Making Your Own Hope; Bishop Michael Nazir-Ali on Thinking and Acting Morally; Roger Scruton asks, Quo Vadis?; Bat Ye'or on the Ambiguities of Multiculturalism; Canon Peter Williams on the British Abolition of Slavery; Shusha Guppy on Christians and Muslims in Britain; Philippa Taylor on Supporting Marriage and the Family; John Marks on Teaching Today; Archbishop Vincent Nichols on Community Cohesion and Catholic Education; Abbot Aidan Bellenger on Seeking God as a Benedictine Monk.
