Product Description

Unlike the United States, Australia was colonised by
convicts, not settlers with convictions, so some readers will be surprised
about the conclusions of historian Meredith Lake, who shows how the Bible has
clearly influenced Australian society. 

It’s largely a hidden history: as Greg
Clarke, CEO of Bible Society Australia, notes in his introduction, “This story
needed to be written because so few of us have had the chance to hear it in our
normal educational experience. It has been pushed towards the margins, whether
deliberately or not, and as a result we have lost some perspective on who we
are and how our nation developed.”
