The key to understanding ‘Europe’ is the paradox of the influence of Christianity and its concurrent abandonment of its message and institutions. In his thought-provoking analysis, the author focuses on the European Christian and other roots, the idea of ‘Europe’ in the past and present, the construction of the EU, immigration and integration, as well as secularisation as a European phenomenon, focusing on challenges for the Churches in mission.
