Occupying the Big Society - Part One

Research output: Contribution to specialist publicationArticle

Abstract

Amidst the fire and fear of Nazi Germany Dietrich Bonhoeffer articulated the calling of the Church – “We are not to simply bandage the wounds of victims beneath the wheels of injustice, we are to drive a spoke into the wheel itself.” Seventy years later the place of faith in the public sphere of an arguably ‘post-religious’ and ‘post-ideological’ century has become a central political and theological question.
