Strategic Secularism: Bible Advocacy in England

Matthew Engelke

Keywords: BIBLE; CHRISTIAN CAMPAIGNING; CHRISTIANITY; SECULARISM

Abstract

This article focuses on the work of Bible 'advocacy' carried out by the Bible Society of England and Wales. It describes how the Society's first 'Campaign to Culture', held in Nottingham, highlighted the Bible as something that a secular public might recognize as a relevant and important source of ideas and issues, quite apart from its religious significance. As the author suggests, these campaigns can be seen as part of a strategic secularism—the process by which religious actors work to incorporate secular formations into religious agendas.
