There is a definite and growing interest and awareness amongst the general public of the competing arguments around faith, God and society.
The book is divided into two sections. Section One tackles issues of ultimate concern and the place of God in the modern world, whilst Section Two considers the role of faith in public life. The contributors bring a range of different voices - both religious and secular - to the conversation.
Section One: Examining God - Richard Harries discusses the challenge to faith from atheism, whilst Dan Cohn-Sherbok thinks about God from a post-holocaust point of view, Daphne Hampson wonders how God might be reconceived in a post-patriarchal context. David Jasper reflects on the role of the arts in leading us to spiritual reflection, and Mona Siddiqui offers a comparison between Muslim and Christian notions of divine love.
Section Two: The role of faith in contemporary society - James Jones argues for 'kingdom values' in public life, Catherine Pepinster advocates an incarnational engagement with social concerns, Roger Trigg asserts that the Christian values that have shaped our political assumptions cannot be ignored. Estelle Morris defends the place of faith schools in a secular society, and finally Tony Bayfield highlights the need for a truly 'public square' where both religious and secular voices can be heard.
Richard Noake is Head of Theology and Religious Studies at York St John University and Director of the Centre for Church School Education.
