Editorial Reviews

Review

"For some time a book has been needed on the sociology of religion in Britain and that need has been met admirably and comprehensively by Grace Davie. This will be the standard text for at least a decade." Professor David Martin, London School of Economics

"A wonderfully readable history and a liberating experience." Roger Bowen, St John's College, Nottingham

"It will remain a valuable resource and a provocative challenge for years to come." The Tablet

"A Scholarly analysis from a sociological point of view of the religious situation in contemporary Britain, including aspects of secularization and the "believing without belonging" pattern". Missiology: An International Review, Vol. XXIII, No.3, July 1995

"A clear and penetrating analysis of many of the main contours of religion in modern Britain." Reviews in Religion

From the Back Cover

This important book describes as accurately as possible the religious situation of Great Britain at the end of the twentieth century, and evaluates this evidence within a sociological framework.

Two key themes emerge within the book. The first concerns the growing mismatch between indices of religious belief in this country, which remain relatively high, and statistics which reflect either religious membership (in its strict sense) or religious practices, both of which demonstrate a marked decline in the post-war period. Hence the phrase `believing without belonging' which becomes, almost, a refrain within the book. The sacred persists but not necessarily in traditional forms.

The second theme concerns the European framework within which the book is set. As Britain moves inexorably - if not always very steadily - to a greater European identity, the considerable variety of religious cultures within the United Kingdom take on a new significance.

Religion in Britain since 1945 will be welcomed by anyone interested in religion in contemporary society.
