On Rock or Sand

Archbishop John Sentamu has edited a new book of essays which aims to assess and reset the terms of the debate about the kind of nation we want to be.

The contributors to this book examine some fundamental questions. How can we draw upon the wellsprings of social solidarity today? What would a new social contract – a new understanding about the respective rights and obligations of the individual citizen and the state – look like today?    At a time when budgets and other resources are being reduced, what are the principles we should adopt to distribute them?

In short, what values can the Christian faith bring to the table to help address the problems we face today? These and other core questions about the kind of society we seek lie at the heart of this book.
