Product Description

Explaining how Australia’s secular society derives from its colonial past, this book examines:

The environmental and social context that encouraged godlessness, including the convict system, the bush, materialism and cultural development; religious practice and sectarianism; the state’s policy of denominational even-handedness to ensure social harmony; the challenges to faith that science and critical biblical scholarship posed; and churchmen’s attempts to foist a moral code on society’s poor and distressed.
