Mgr Robert Draper, Vicar General of Plymouth RC Diocese, explores the place of the Roman Catholic church as part of global church in the 21st century.

Within just…

Dr Theo Hobson looks at humanism and questions its secular credentials. In his book "God created humanism" he, in Rowan Williams's words, "invites us to recognise that the core moral values of liberal modernity did not fall ready made from a secular heaven but or the deposit of a long theological tradition. But ... he makes it clear that this is a challenge to contemporary religious complacency at least as much as to a smug and patronising secularity". We are very…

One of the inescapable realities of being human is death. Christianity is sometimes accused of denying this reality but in fact sees death not so much as an ending but a new beginning. The Revd Andrew Edmeads MA has for many years been chaplain to a Children's Hospice and is better qualified than most to reflect on the encounter of the human being with approaching mortality. He writes: "I have become more interested in what it means to be human,…

Dorothy L Sayers is best known as the creator of suave sleuth Lord Peter Wimsey but she was also one of the finest Anglican theologians of the 20th century. Sayers challenged the patriarchal church of her day to broaden its understanding of what it means to be human, male and female and in her book Mind of the Maker used the creative process in the arts and literature to illuminate theology and vice versa.
