About "Post-God Nation: How Religion Fell Off the Radar in Australia - and What It Needs to Get Back on It"

In little over a century since Federation, Australia has gone from a 98% professing Christian nation, to a mere 5% active churchgoers. Roy Williams traces the causes of this decline, and considers what the churches should do to reverse it in today's materialistic post-faith society.
- Koorong

At the time of Federation 98% of Australians identified themselves as Christians. Now only 5% regularly go to Church. The reasons for this steep decline in faith are broad - they include the failings of the Church itself; its relentless negativity and hypocrisy as well as misunderstandings about what belief entails. But is a post-faith society a good thing given that the alternative is often rampant materialism? This book will look at why and how mainstream religion fell off the radar and what the Church should/could do to redeem itself.

The influence of Christianity in Australia
5 stars By SparkLit, Jul 06 2017
In this accessible yet rigorous exploration of the real and perceived influence of Christianity in Australia, Roy Williams engages with both historical and contemporary culture and thinking. He demonstrates the impact of Christianity on the culture and values of all Australians, whether Christian or not. Williams imagines a frightening and convincing picture of an Australia where the Christian voice has been forever silenced. He does not shrink from identifying ways that Christians have undermined their own credibility. His list of causes where the churches should be at the forefront deserves serious consideration. (2016 Australian Christian Book of the Year judges)
