The changing relationship between the church and its supporters is key to understanding changing religious and social attitudes in Victorian Britain. Using the records of the Anglican Church’s home-missionary organizations, Flew charts the decline in Christian philanthropy and its connection to the growing secularization of society. This is a highly original contribution to two of the most widely debated issues in modern religious history and the sociology of religion.
