The Christian roots of liberal values

20th March 2017

With liberal values on the back foot, it’s time to look at the roots of the worldview we have taken for granted. 

Nick Spencer and Theo Hobson have both recently written books about Christianity’s influence on Western values, and the secular ideals of human rights and social justice. In different ways, they both call for a fresh understanding of the relationship of Christianity and secular humanism.

Join Nick and Theo for an evening discussing this crucial topic.

The Chair is Professor Grace Davie.

Nick Spencer is author of The Evolution of the West: How Christianity Has Shaped our Values (2016). 

Theo Hobson is author of God Created Humanism: The Christian Basis of Secular Values (2017).
