5.0 out of 5 stars Time for Christians to wake up, 29 Feb 2012
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: We Don't Do God: The Marginalisation of Public Faith (Paperback)
Christianity is not persecuted in this country but is being slowly squeezed out of official life. Prohibitions on praying for others while on duty, wearing crosses and so on: these are events that have stimulated the former Archbishop to write.

Lord Carey's readable account of recent rulings which have sought to marginalise Christianity makes a disturbing view of how much of modern day Britain views the role of Christianity. Essentially he is reacting to the populist view that Christianity is for individuals on their own or together but not to be broadcast to others.

I read it in three sittings so is not academic although he is looking at material published by Dawkins and others as well as Law Lords rulings.

The important point he makes is, we can not go back to the days when Christianity was unquestioned, but those who think Christianity is important for the 21st century have to tread a different path to that previously.

The world has changed but there is still a lot of life in Christianity if its adherents wake up and reclaim some of their public expression.

Read it and be challenged if you feel the Christian faith is being marginalised.
