Following Britain's decision to leave the European Union, and with increasing division, xenophobia, and confusion over future national and international relationships, this thought- and action-provoking book considers the crucial question, Who is my Neighbour? What does the Christian injunction to `love your neighbour as yourself' actually mean in practice today? Contributions by renowned theologians and practitioners reflect on this subject in relation to issues of poverty, ecology, immigration, fear and discrimination, and the recent political upheavals both in Europe and the USA.
