During this century the Christian Churches of Britain have lost support and influence to the extent that their future is considered by some observers to be problematic. They have also been confronted with an unprecedented concentration of social changes, some of which have challenged centralreligious traditions and teachings. This multi-denominational study is the first to investigate these changes (public and private) across virtually the entire Christian spectrum. Professor Machin shows that while there are examples of growing division between Churches over some social issues, themore general response has been one of differences within Churches. This fascinating and broad-ranging study will be invaluable to all those interested in the Churches' response to the social and moral challenges of twentieth-century Britain.
G.I.T. Machin is a Professor of British History, University of Dundee.
