Here’s an invitation to all ACL members and others interested in Australian history:

Attending to the National Soul – Evangelical Christians in Australian History 1914 – 2014 by Stuart Piggin and Robert D. Linder follows the highly awarded book The Fountain of Public Prosperity – Evangelical Christians in Australian History 1740–1914, which was published in 2018.

Both volumes are the result of thirty years’ research and writing.

Monash University Publishing is delighted to invite you to the launch of Attending to the National Soul, at St Stephen’s Church, 197 Macquarie Street, Sydney (opposite Parliament House) on 12 December 2019, 3.00 – 5.00 pm.

The event will be chaired by Dr Meredith Lake and the book will be launched by Dr Tim Costello.

RSVP to Stephen Chavura by 28 November.

Commendations for the book:

In June 2018, former Deputy Prime Minister John Anderson spoke with Stuart about the first volume, The Fountain of Public Prosperity, in this interview.

And the first volume, The Fountain of Public Prosperity, was awarded the 2019 Australian Christian Book of the Year. At the award ceremony, Dr Piggin explains something of his hopes for the book.
