Description

At the time of Federation 98% of Australians identified themselves as Christians. Now only 5% regularly go to Church. The reasons for this steep decline in faith are broad - they include the failings of the Church itself; its relentless negativity and hypocrisy as well as misunderstandings about what belief entails. But is a post-faith society a good thing given that the alternative is often rampant materialism? This book will look at why and how mainstream religion fell off the radar and what the Church should/could do to redeem itself.
