Front Cover
Bloomsbury Academic, Jan 1, 2003 - Religion - 176 pages
Shirley Williams, a practicing Catholic, explores the relationship between Christian teaching, the Church and public life in the modern world. God and Caesar includes discussion of the transformation of pre-industrial society by modern progress and the subsequent distancing of human beings from God, the current cynicism about politicians and the political process, the prevailing crisis in the priesthood, the new roles that have opened up for women in the Catholic Church, and the effects of globalization in the twenty-first century.

God and Caesar is an immediately relevant work for modern society by one of Britain's most respected figures.
