Unlike the United States, Australia was colonised by convicts, not settlers with convictions, so some readers will be surprised about the conclusions of historian Meredith Lake, who shows how the Bible has clearly influenced Australian society.

It's largely a hidden history: as Greg Clarke, CEO of Bible Society Australia, notes in his introduction, "This story needed to be written because so few of us have had the chance to hear it in our normal educational experience. It has been pushed towards the margins, whether deliberately or not, and as a result we have lost some perspective on who we are and how our nation developed."

Meredith Lake is an historian of Australian Christianity, with a PhD from the University of Sydney.

Ages 13 to adult.
