-Publisher

In Faith in Politics? Richard Harries addresses our concerns by re-examining the roots of our political values. He considers the various strands of thought that have had a bearing on political philosophy over time, such as utilitarianism and liberalism, and how each contribute to contemporary views of the good society. He argues strongly that a Christian perspective has a distinct part to play in the shaping of our life together, and that rediscovering this perspective can help towards building a better society.
