Abstract

Today’s discourse about religion in the public sphere is dominated by debates around radicalisation, narrow sectarian schooling, regression in women’s rights and illiberalism. This distorts the reality of what religion can offer the public sphere, Rvd Dr James Walters argues. The vast majority of religious life provides social capital, helping us to see beyond self-interest and the destructive excesses of an individualistic society.
