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

Keywords: Sociology of Religion, Religion, religion in Britain, secularisation, secular Britain, the Church, faith communities, religious literacy, sociology of religion, believing without belonging, religious belief, religious cultures, contemporary society, cultural heritage
