Faith in Britain
David Alton
Who can doubt that we are living in an increasingly materialistic society? How are Christians to respond?”
Questioning whether Britain can any longer be called a Christian nation, David Alton issues a timely challenge to Christians across the political spectrum:
what can be done now and in the future to reclaim our Christian heritage?
One of the founders of the Movement for Christian Democracy, he devotes the core of his book to the movement’s foundational principles:

  1. Social justice
  2. Respect for Life
  3. Reconciliation
  4. Empowerment
  5. Active compassion and good Stewardship

At a time of great political and economic change, he argues, Christians need to grasp the new opportunities available, particularly in the light of closer ties with Europe where different examples of Christian democracy are already to be found.

“If not now, when?
If not us, who?”

For the Uyghurs, Genocide is a word which dares not speak its name. For the sake of women like Rahima Mahmut, Gulzira Auelkhan, Sayragul Sauytbay, and Ruqiye Perhat – whose heart-breaking, shocking, stories are recorded here – it’s time that the crime of genocide was given definition in the UK. On January 19th Parliament can use its voice and speak that name – insisting on justice for victims of Genocide and refusing to make tawdry trade deals with those responsible for the crime above all crimes.
