The Bible lies at the heart of Remembrance
Churches up and down the country have marked Remembrance Sunday, with many of them joined by people gathering at war memorials as they have done for nearly 100 years.
This year’s commemorations have an added poignancy as we mark the centenary of World War One. Some nine million men were killed and a further 21 million were injured.
"It is hard to understand British society at the time of World War One if you subtract the Bible from it," says Dr Michael Snape, Reader in Religion, War and Society at the University of Birmingham.
"The Bible was a defining influence on British culture across class divides. From the public school to the Sunday school, from art and music to political debate, the Bible was in the blood of British people."
