The Houses of Parliament, on the banks of the River Thames at Westminster, are among the most iconic buildings in the world. They have stood for generations at the centre of the United Kingdom's national political life, and have often been called 'the cradle of democracy'. This book tells the history of Parliament from the Middle Ages to the present day, including such dramatic events as the Gunpowder Plot, the Civil War, the assassination of the Prime Minister, the suffragette protests and the Blitzkrieg. It shows especially how the Christian faith has shaped parliamentary debates and ideals through the centuries.
