"Public Spirit" argues a case for the Christian to work with diverse neighbours for the common good and in critical solidarity with liberal democracy. This book is for Christians and fellow-citizens concerned about the crisis of public life in the West - including voter apathy and alienation from democratic politics, the rise of extremism and clashing identities, and the turbulent new world order of globalisation. It argues the case for being public-spirited citizens, and explores its Christian sources for the twenty-first century. Drawing on the author's experience in devolved Scotland, and interviews with post-apartheid South African public leaders, "Public Spirit" argues a presently unfashionable case for the Christian as 'the neighbourhood saint', working with diverse neighbours for the common good and in critical solidarity with liberal democracy.
