|Abstract:||The notion of a just society, where all have adequate access to resources, opportunity and a say in decisions that affect their lives, is not only a basic tenet of modern Western democracies, but a notion that few Christians would disagree that the Gospels call for.

In 2016, the National Church Life Survey asked a sample of Catholic, Anglican and Protestant attenders the following question: “Do you agree or disagree: ‘Christians should work to change the structures of society in order to create a more just society’?”|
