Religion in Europe is not and can not be a mere matter of private life. When taken seriously, religion inevitably becomes a public matter.
A collection of texts from the ECPM Congress 2005
Edited by Silviu E. Rogobete and Andre Otchie
Religion in Europe is not and can not be a mere matter of private life. When taken seriously, religion inevitably becomes a public matter. And this is true both at individual and at collective, socio-political levels. What is the role and the place of the Christian religion for contemporary Europe? Are there specific answers within the Christian faith for such pressing issues as coping with religious, national and/or cultural diversity? Can Christians offer relevant views on economic integration, minority groups, religious tolerance, and contemporary forms of extremism?
The collection of texts put together in this work attempts to answer such questions. In fact, this volume reproduces the main contributions presented at the first Congress of the European Christian Political Movement (ECPM) held in Leuven (Belgium) from the 30th of November to the 2nd of December 2005.
