Book of the Month: May 2012

The Faith of the English by Nigel Rooms 

A highly original, intriguing, intelligent and in many ways endearingly English book.  – Kate Fox, author of ‘Watching the English’

Unlike a number of other writers I could mention, Rooms gets the distinction right. He also understands that genuine inculturation produces fresh theological insights as the gospel discloses new aspects of its message in dialogue with different cultures.  – Paul Richardson, The Church of England Newspaper

What happens when the principles of inculturation are applied to English culture? This book encourages people to think more deeply about the relationship between faith and culture, and to see how the good news can most effectively be brought to the English.
