The establishment of CPX was surprisingly praised by former Australian prime minister Kevin Rudd; who in an unsolicited letter referred to it as ‘a welcome development in the spiritual and intellectual life of Australia’. In his letter Mr Rodd (cited in Smith 2008) also states: [CPX] has the potential to make a valuable contribution to public debate in Australia " in promoting a better understanding of Christian faith in the wider community, as well as promoting greater engagement with public life and culture by Australian Christians.
