Two things you’re not supposed to talk about are religion and politics. In Australia we like to keep the two separate, but that seemed impossible when Scott Morrison, a self-proclaimed evangelical Christian, became Prime Minister in 2018.

Key points:

  • Scott Morrison, Australia’s 30th Prime Minister (2018-2022), releases his memoir Plans For Your Good, A Prime Minister’s Testimony of God’s Faithfulness.
