‘Christian Socialism’ Plea

Your coverage of Brexit, full of foreboding, combined with Ron Ferguson’s reflection that “there is a sense of unease in our land” (Life and Work, March) are well aimed and timely.

We should analyse the problem and ask how, as Christians, we can help.

I suggest a reappraisal of Christian Socialism (CS) is in order. It’s broader than you may think.

CS was formulated in the nineteenth century in response to laissez-faire capitalism.
