Abstract:

The author reviews nine books as evidence of the current religious and theological interest in the First World War, all published during the course of the present centenary. The nine books represent a range of aspects of faith during the First World War: six deal with the impact of the war on particular individuals; another is a new edition of a work of theology from 1918 by one of those individuals; one book, taking a general view, makes an overall assessment of the impact of the war on faith in Britain; and one is a more meditative reflection on how various issues raised by the war affect us today.

Keywords:
