THE CASE FOR CHRISTIAN FREEDOMS TODAY
Magna Carta is not only one of the most celebrated documents in British history, but stands as a foundation of political and religious freedom throughout the world. Yet the liberties fought for and heralded in Magna Carta are under severe attack as controversial issues of religious freedoms, human rights, equality legislation and freedom of speech present significant challenges for our society today.
In the year of its 800th anniversary Magna Carta Unravelled traces the Christian origins and legacy of this great Charter, focusing on the current challenges to individual liberty.

“As one essayist puts it, “We need to be much more honest about where we have come from and where we are going.” These essays are frank, lucid and stimulating sources for reflection; and are helpful encouragements to further inquiries and to work for sensible remedies before it is too late.” John Finnis,Professor of Law and Legal Philosophy Emeritus, University of Oxford
“This book emphasises the relationship between the dignity of our democratic traditions and the religious liberty of our citizens. It is a timely reminder of the proper limits of the power of the state and deserves to be studied widely.” The Rt Rev Dr Peter Forster,Bishop of Chester
“Magna Carta continues to compel Christian people to fearlessly explore what makes for human flourishing in a liberal democracy. Any wake-up call — such as this book — is rarely comfortable, occasionally inconvenient, always unsettling; but the issues discussed, of conscience, belief and freedom, refuse to be silenced.” HH Judge David Turner QC
“This book provides a comprehensive analysis of the basis and origins of human rights and a penetrating examination of the contemporary battle between secularism, Islam and Christianity. It is essential reading for all concerned at the loss of traditional freedoms and the future implications.” Rev Dr Clifford Hill,Issachar Ministries
“At a time when secular humanism is so energetically seeking to undermine the Judaeo-Christian values of our culture, this book presents a brilliant and robust statement of the continuing significance of Magna Carta.” Dennis Wrigley,Founder of The Maranatha Community
