Description

Issues relating to the law, theology, and religion in Australia have in recent years occupied a prominent place in Australian public discussion and scholarly debate.

This issue of St Mark’s Review provides substantial and incisive reflection, from some of Australia’s leading legal scholars, on pressing legal, religious, and theological issues for Australians. These issues relate to religious freedom and conscience, the importance of religious voices in the public square, Australian churches’ use of the law to address their own grave abuses and moral failures, and the significant limitations of the law and the courts for addressing the complex social issues that face contemporary Australian society.
