August Books 14) Faith in Europe?

A series of six lectures given in Westminster Cathedral in 2005 by Jean Vanier (founder of the Larche community), Mary McAleese, Timothy Radcliffe, Bob Geldof, Chris Patten and Cormac Murphy-O'Connor, addressing Europe and Christianity. Most of them are worthy but unsurprising. Chris Patten's is, of course, the best written. Bob Geldof's is weirdly wrong-headed and poorly structured on Europe but then very good on Africa. Mercifully brief.
