About this book


Christianity has been marginalised, no longer considered a serious option for the high ground of contemporary debate. This book seeks to reclaim that high ground by showing the inadequacy of secularism. What is the standing of religious experience? Can love and marriage be adequately explained in secular terms? What values are needed in a technological society? Where can an adequate environmental ethic be found? In facing these vital questions the Christian religion makes an essential contribution.
