about

Homes for all is a crucial concern across Britain. This important and timely book offers fresh perspectives, challenging insights and practical proposals for addressing housing needs. It has been written by professionals in the subject and policymakers, as well as church leaders and theologians. When political debate is polarised, the interests of people pushed to margins are often ignored. This book redresses the balance. It opens up opportunities for constructive partnerships for change across the community.

Andrew Francis is a community theologian, poet, environmentalist and retired United Reformed Church minister. His many other books include Shalom: the Jesus Manifesto (2016), Anabaptism: Radical Christianity (2010) Hospitality and Community After Christendom (2012) and What in God's Name Are You Eating? (2014).

Contributors include a foreword by Alison Gelder of Housing Justice, the Anglican Bishop of Manchester David Walker, Trisha Dale, Sean Gardiner, Chris Horton, Paul Lusk, Helen Roe, Helen Woolley and Raymond Young.
