Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher

"The Churches and Social Issues in Twentieth-Century Britain may serve as an introductory...text which provides an overview of the moral issues the British churches have faced in the twentieth century. It is written in accessible but adequately scholarly language, and is straightforward in its style and organization."--Journal of Church and State

"Machin has done much to map out a territory and to provide a perspective that spans both the century and the wide variety of British church life.This is a welcome, accessible, and scholarly exploratory study of a field that merits further detailed research."-- The Catholic Historical Review
