9780007100651: God's Politicians: The Christian Contribution to 100 years of Labour

This is a book that tells the story and assesses the impact of Christianity in 100 years of the Labour Party. With a Foreword by the Prime Minister, Tony Blair, this is a significant title on British politics.

Tracing the history of the Labour Party through 100 years since its inception, this book focuses on the pivotal figures whose faith in God has motivated and moulded their politics. Many of these courageous men and women fought against the prevailing attitudes of their day to bring greater dignity to ordinary people through workers’ rights, the women’s suffrage movement, education and health care.

The Christian element in the Labour Party has been strong throughout, but it has sometimes sat uneasily with the philosophy of Marxism, from which Labour has also drawn its principles. This book looks at the dynamism and tensions along the way in a fascinating historical survey.

Prime Minister Tony Blair will be writing a Foreword commending this book.
