There is a difference between the official numbers of church attendance from the church and from the government and media.  Why is that?  Dr. Oliver-Dee says that the “new establishment” wants to ignore the views of of Christians and that the death of faith will be caused by the progress of science.
About the Author-
Dr. Sean Oliver-Dee currently works as a Interreligious Advisor for his local Anglican diocese.  He is a religious affairs consultant to different organizations.
My thoughts-
I thought this was an interesting book.  I live in the United States, so the statistics from the UK didn’t apply to me.  The thoughts behind the statistics and the statistics from the U.S. did apply to me.  We need to be aware of what the media is saying compared to what is really happening with the Christian churches.  In Britain it seems as if Christianity isn’t as popular as it was in the past, but it is not true.
To me it seemed like chapter 8 was really the beginning of the book.  I know the reader needed to know all of the different statistics that are out there, but I found the most useful chapters were at the end.  That is probably because they were the most practical ones.  They discussed how to change the perceptions that are out there.
I would recommend this book to anyone in any country.  We need to know what is truly happening to Christian statistics throughout the world.
