Quay, who is clearly a Greek scholar, does not make the reader feel stupid or inadequate by his erudition in explaining and applying the meaning of Greek words.

March 18 2018 By dvirtue Book review: Reimagining Britain: Foundations of Hope by Justin Welby

Time and again Welby brings us back to 1945, the last occasion, he suggests, when Britain was forced to reimagine itself. His enthusiasm for William Beveridge, the 1944 Education Act, the NHS and the massive housebuilding programme of the postwar Attlee government remains utterly undimmed. Those who are inclined to see the welfare state as the incubator of many of our present ills will not find much succour in these pages.
