Together they examine the function of majority churches as agents of social welfare in eight European societies (Sweden, Finland, Norway, England, Germany, France, Italy and Greece). The issues raised in this book are of immediate topical importance: they include the increased visibility of religion in the public sphere, the anxieties of European populations about the welfare state and the centrality of gender to both questions.

This book is designed to help us to understand the processes at work over the last 40 years, from a global, national and local perspective and to live efficiently and purposefully in this context.

John Atherton's work has served as beacon to many in the church, academy and wider world. Its distinguished ensemble of contributors practise with flair just the form of public theology Atherton himself so effectively championed. Prescient, pastoral and probing - and whether writing economics, politics or business - Atherton's work has stood out as one the very best exemplars of public theology in recent times. His writing represents a natural theological successor to William Temple's legacy, and as such, will continue to serve the cause and hope of public theology for the foreseeable future.

In this book the Canon Theologian of Manchester Catherdal offers: an exploration of the meaning of partnership and reconciliation for and through an understanding of public theology; a look at the dramatic changes of the past 40 years from a British and a global perspective; an interpretation of these changing times in the light of historical and contemporary processes, which demonstrates how Christianity acts as an effective partner in such change; and an application of political theology in local, national and international contexts, and a testing of this political theology as practical divinity.
