Everywhere you look in the Houses of Parliament you can see the influence of Christians and Christianity in shaping our democracy. It is evident in the history, the architecture, the artwork, the procedures and traditions, and the lives of the men and women who have served there.

This tour guide by Andrew Atherstone offers a concise general introduction to the history of Parliament, with a strong emphasis on its Christian heritage. In an age when secular attempts to 'airbrush out' this influence have sometimes obscured key elements of this remarkable story, this guide is timely and important. So if you want to know:

  • when were 200 new Christian MPs elected in a single year, including 150 teetotallers(!);
