E 168 The Church and the Big Society

What is the “Big Society”, and is it a good thing? This engaging study traces the origins of the idea and discovers its connections with Christian theology and ethics.

It then explores some critiques, from an economic, philosophical and theological perspective, before looking at the way the best of “Big Society” can be exemplified in the local church. It forms an excellent guide to a key contemporary notion.
