The theme of the 2012 SETS Annual Conference (16-17 April 2012), “A Godly Commonwealth? The Gospel and Scottish Identity”, anticipated a growing interest in Christian reflection on national identity in Scotland. Now that the referendum debate is growing in vigour, the Society is making available the resources from that conference, both in their original form (MP3), and as they were later published in the Bulletin (PDF).
We trust these contributions will be a help to those wrestling with the issues facing Scotland in the run up to 18 September 2014, and even beyond.
