Christianity & Contemporary Politics: Beyond the Big Society


What do the Franciscans, Calvin and ancient Roman Law have to do with contemporary social policy? Luke Bretherton explores how the churches can look beyond arguments about the good society or the Big Society and contribute to a more just and generous society.

Luke Bretherton is a reader in Theology and Politics at King’s College London. His book Hospitality as Holiness: Christian Witness Amid Moral Diversity explores the church’s response to moral pluralism. He also writes for the broadsheet press on topics related to church-state relations in a multi-faith society.
