Nick Spencer on the Political Bible (Parts 1-4)

Nick Spencer, Research Director at Theos, the Public Theology Think Tank, is half-way through an interesting eight-part series on ‘the political Bible’ in The Guardian. The short articles helpfully summarise aspects of his recent publication, Freedom and Order: History, Politics and the English Bible (London: Hodder & Stoughton, 2011).

Part 1: A foundation for British attitudes

Part 2: Justice – When is a king not a king?

Part 3: How Britain came to accept democracy

Part 4: Toleration
