Awarded the Religious Book of the Year in 1989, Advance Australia Where? is one man’s personal search for social and spiritual understanding as to why 200 years of extraordinary technical and material advancement show such violence, identity crisis and social upheaval.
From convicts to settlers, from country mateship to urban alienation, from the land of the fair-go to the land of the me-generation – what are the causes and consequences of Australia’s ills? Have we become a land with everything, but nothing to live for.
- the effects of Australia’s convict beginnings
- society’s flourishing ‘identity crisis’
- the original Australians, the Aborigines
- God in a ‘post-Christian’ era
- the role of the church
Is Australia advancing? Or is she really declining? Truly, Advance Australia Where? is essential reading for every Australian.
