There sound some interesting themes in the book that this post reviews.
What happens when the stained glass ceiling is shattered? Well, now I have an idea. I’ve just read Archbishop by Michele Guinness. And what happens is a frighteningly plausible prediction of the UK, a decade or so from now. One where a terrorist atrocity gives an atheist prime minister a reason to implement draconian anti-proselytising laws – which result in prison sentences for ordinary Christians who ask their neighbours to a baptism. This may sound far-fetched, but we are already part of the way there. But the author writes about other, more subtle and even more likely, future changes. How would you feel about the idea of cashless benefits? You may think – great, stops scroungers spending their money on booze and fags. But should the government intervene in what people buy? Should they say, in effect, you can have bread, but not sugar, condoms, sanitary towels or nappies?
