"Dr Norman thinks we are turning the Last Supper into a self-help group." "Do not read it if you are complacent, if you think the Church is not in a state of crisis or if you do not like to think."Now out in a convenient compact format, Edward Norman's book deals with the possible fate of institutional religion in a post-modern world. His case study is the Church of England but he uses undoubted knoweldge and skill to assess the task for the Church today. His conclusions cannot be ignored by Christians of any nationality or tradition.
Edward Norman is Chancellor of York Minster. Part of the Peterhouse group (with Roger Scruton, David Watkin and John Vincent), he is the most persuasive and articulate exponent of what has been termed the new right . He was formerly Dean of Peterhouse, Cambridge and has been a Reith lecturer.
