Reimagining Britain : Foundations for Hope, Hardback Book

Reimagining Britain : Foundations for Hope Hardback

Description

In a time of political turbulence, and as the Welfare State totters under the strain in a country that has changed dramatically since 1945, Archbishop Justin Welby sets out to identify the values that will enable us to reimagine, and to enact, a more hopeful future. The thesis is that the work of reimagining is as great as it was in 1945, and will happen either by accident - and thus badly - or deliberately.

The author draws on Britain's history and Christian tradition to identify this country's foundational values, and the building blocks necessary to implement them in a post-Brexit, multicultural society.

He explores the areas in which values are translated into action, including the traditional three of recent history: health (especially public, and mental), housing and education.

To these he adds family; the environment; economics and finance; peacebuilding and overseas development; immigration; and integration.

He looks particularly at the role of faith groups in enabling, and contributing to, a fairer future.

When so many are immobilized by political turmoil, this book builds on our past to offer hope for the future, and practical ways of achieving a more equitable society.
