Pulpit and Politics

P&P crop

Pulpit and Politics explores the complex relationship between religious faith and public life in Canada and elsewhere.

There is much research and writing in the US and other countries about this connection but far less attention has been devoted to it in Canada.

This blog intends to assist in filling an information gap.
