§As reported by publisher
Summaries and Reviews description: Product Description: This volume is a history of 20th-century Christianity in Wales. Beginning with a description of religion and its place in society in 1914, it assesses the effect which the Great War had on people's spiritual convictions and on religious opinion and practice. It proceeds to analyze the state of the disestablished Church in Wales, an increasingly confident Catholicism and the growing inter-war crisis of Non-comformity. Liberal theology and the social gospel, the fundamentalist impulse and the churches' response to economic dislocation and political change are discussed, as is the much less traumatic effect of World War II.
