In this Brief Book Neil Foster, Associate Professor in Law at Newcastle University, leads us through a general overview of some of the legal challenges facing Bible-believing Christians in Australia as we go forward into the 21st Century.

Note from the author: One of the cases I discuss in the book, the Cobaw case, has now gone on appeal and I have done a note on the appeal decision.
