On Rock or Sand? assesses and resets the terms of the debate about the kind of nation we want to be, with chapters by expert economic, political, religious and social thinkers, including contributions by Lord Adonis, Sir Philip Mawer, Oliver O’Donovan, Andrew Sentance, Julia Unwin and Archbishop Justin Welby

What values can the Christian faith bring to the table to help address the problems we face today? These and other core questions about the kind of society we seek lie at the heart of this book. The Most Revd and Rt Hon Dr John Sentamu has been Archbishop of York since 2005. Prior to that he was appointed Bishop for Stepney in 1996 and Bishop for Birmingham in 2002.  His previous publications include John Sentamu's Faith Stories (DLT, 2013) and John Sentamu's Hope Stories (DLT, 2014)
