The Two Cities

by St. John-Stevas, Norman

Condition: Fine/Very Good


London: Faber & Faber, 1984. A Fine unmarked copy with VG+ dustjacket which is not price clipped. Norman St. John-Stevas holds a unique position in British life not only as a leading Christian spokesman but also as a senior Conservative politician. In this book he explores with characteristic wit and brilliance the two main themes of his life: his concern with religion and morals and his fascination with the House of Commons and the politics of Westminster. He assesses post-war British politics, and as a former Arts Minister the problems facing the arts, sets out his views on controversial issues such as euthanasia, censorship, religious education and the permissive society. He records his thoughts on the place of the Christian in secular society, the role of churchman in politics, examines the basis of the Christian faith, the nature of prayer and the relationship between religion and contemporary society. He reflects on the great feasts of the Church, on Christian humanism, on hope and the ecummenical movement. R3. First Edition. Hard Cover. Fine/Very Good. 8vo - over 7¾" - 9¾" tall.
