Summary This book explores British media coverage and representation of religion and contemporary secular values and is set in the context of wider debates about the sociology of religion and media representation. The authors consider the media portrayal of Christianity and public life, Islam and religious diversity, atheism and secularism, and popular beliefs and practices, and draw on research conducted in the 1980s and 2008-10 to assess what has changed in the last 25 years.
