Review

'Touching almost all areas of life in the UK today, here at last is the answer to the question: 'What does the Church think we should do?' Old, young, rich, poor: in this book the whole of the UK is drawn together and observed from above, with Christianity the central touchstone. If the Bible has answers, they are here.' --Jeremy Vine, BBC journalist and radio presenter

'In an age of competing interest groups and the fragmentation of culture, it becomes more important than ever to articulate a vision of the common good and the ties that bind us to one another in collective responsibility and fate. That is what the essays in this book do, with great depth and moral power. This is a fine work and a necessary one, and it will lift our sights as a nation.' --Jonathan Sacks, Professor of Law, Ethics and the Bible, Kings College, London

'As a participant in several of the Archbishop of York's Symposia, I knew the book into which the discussions flowed would brim with wisdom, perspective, insight and, above all, hope - perhaps the commodity in shortest supply in the UK at the moment. This is a volume that will stimulate the intellects, warm the hearts and stir the souls of its readers.' --- Peter Hennessy, Attlee Professor of Contemporary British History , Queen Mary University of London

'This is a watershed moment for British society, as more and more people are recognising. These essays, by a range of respected authorities, offer a clear and comprehensive picture of the values and priorities we need to discover or rediscover if we are not to go on slipping into a value-free muddle whose costs are carried by those least able to bear them.' --Rowan Williams, Master of Magdalene College, Cambridge
