The Long Truce free pdf The political dogma of toleration is little more than a tool of the modern state in its drive for power and wealth. Here, A J Conyers shows that by banishing questions of ultimate meaning from public life, the modern version of toleration has debased our politics and undermined social cohesion. He argues provocatively for a return to the authentic toleration found in pre-Reformation Christianity.
