Product description

This book offers a fully up-to-date and comprehensive guide to religion in Britain since 1945. A team of leading scholars provide a fresh analysis and overview, with a particular focus on diversity and change. They examine: * relations between religious and secular beliefs and institutions * the evolving role and status of the churches * the growth and 'settlement' of non-Christian religious communities * the spread and diversification of alternative spiritualities * religion in welfare, education, media, politics and law * theoretical perspectives on religious change. The volume presents the latest research, including results from the largest-ever research initiative on religion in Britain, the AHRC/ESRC Religion and Society Programme. Survey chapters are combined with detailed case studies to give both breadth and depth of coverage. The text is accompanied by relevant photographs and a companion website.
