Notice board: politics and society

16 June 2017

STEVEN GREEN’s Inventing a Christian America is his analysis of the religious background to life in the United States. The idea that the US was founded as a Christian nation is, he argues, a myth that needs challenging. Although based on historical facts, the truth is far from later embellishments and interpretations (OUP, £19.99 (£18); 978-0-19-023097-5).

How can Christians remain Christ-centred when it comes to the fast-moving information technol­ogies of the current age? Ed Brooks and Pete Nicholas address social networking, Twitter, virtual sex, and other topics in Virtually Human: Flourishing in a digital world (IVP, £8.99 (£8.10); 978-1-78359-389-7).
