This is a source book for the study of religions in Britain in the nineteenth and twentieth centuries. It covers an important period in the history of religions in Britain, a period of challenge to religion and a period of change in the religious map of Britain. Each author is a specialist in a particular aspect if this history, and there are extensive bibliographies. The book demonstrates how pluralistic the map of religion has been in Britain, thereby challenging the view that Britain is and has been a predominantly single religion country. This religious pluralism is shown to apply within the Christian religion as much as to those movements outside Christianity. There are six contributors: Dr Sheridan Gilley, (Durham); Rev Ieuan P. Ellis, (Hull) ; Professor Anthony O. Dyson, (Manchester); Dr Kim Knott, (Leeds); Dr David Hempton, (Belfast); Dr Kenneth A Thompson, (The Open University).
