The book contains sixty accounts of the Christian origins of well-known societies, from the last two centuries. Some are of recent origin and are fully involved in working for the kingdom. Others have been around for many years and have not lost their original vision, although they have adapted to changing times. Some have departed from their evangelical roots but are still involved in helping the unfortunate society. Each organization will contribute a short information box of their current outlook and requirements.^
:The influence of Christians is a part of our inheritance and a key factor in the creation of a moral fabric underpinning our society.
For a society to function there have to be norms of acceptable behaviour. In a society that does not accept our the existence of God, right and wrong are relative terms that change with every fashion or political movement. Right or wrong are concepts that don't really exist without absolutes - fixed points outside society which are not changed by it.
60 great founders tell the story of Christians who contributed to the setting up of organisations that changed people's lives and influenced what we call 'civilised society'. Without these people our lives would be poorer, through their foundational work our attitudes are closer to those who expressed by God in the bible.
The late Geoffrey Hanks was a teacher and respected church historian.
