Religion in the UK and USA

Posted by Michael Mosbacher

In April, the Social Affairs Unit - together with The New Criterion - held a joint conference in Connecticut on the different roles religion has played in shaping UK and US society. The papers from this conference have now been published as essays by The New Criterion. The essays on the UK are by Simon Green of All Souls' College, Oxford - Religion and the Victorians - and Christie Davies of Reading University - The death of religion & the fall of respectable Britain. Prof. Davies' essay draws upon his research for The Strange Death of Moral Britain, to be launched in the UK in September. There are also interesting essays on religion in America by Marc Arkin of Fordham University - A democratic & republican religion - and Terry Eastland of The Weekly Standard.

I particularly enjoyed Marc Arkin's comments about Christian sex manuals and diet books - 'More of Jesus, Less of Me'.
