From the Tower of Babel to Parliament Hill: How to be a Christian in Canada today

April 11, 2024 Books

Was Canada ever Christian? Is pluralism just a modern Babel – or an opportunity for real faith? Is there any hope for our fragmented country and our fragmented souls?

With debates over immigration, Quebec’s separation and individual rights continuing to make our headlines, these are timely and provocative questions – and Brian Stiller’s answers are thoughtful and sometimes surprising. He says that Canadians are in a state of cultural, political and spiritual confusion – much like the people in the biblical story of Babel, whose plans for greatness were thwarted when God confused their speech. He looks at the history of our country and at the role of Christians in building it.  He speaks to Christians about what their place should be in the public life of a multicultural and pluralistic country. And he asserts that, despite our differences, a diversely rich Canada can exist within the Christian model.

Offering an insightful, workable blueprint for Christians of al denominations in Canada today, From the Tower of Babel to Parliament Hill shows how we can grow both as a nation and in our own spiritual lives.
