About "Spirit of Australia II: Religion in Citizenship and National Life"
This book continues a process of showing that the dynamic relationship between religion and society is far more significant - philosophically, historically, theologically and even sociologically - than is often credited. This book is about that interplay between the Christian faith and civil society in Australia in the time prior to and during the process of constructing a federated nation, and in the period since Federation. In so doing, this book continues the discussion of themes developed in Spirit of Australia I.
