In this interview, Robert Woodberry, Associate Professor of Political Science at the National University of Singapore, tells the remarkable and…

Life & Faith: Compassionate Conservatism

Dr Marvin Olasky is a leading proponent of compassionate conservatism – two words we don’t often hear together. But it’s not just political word candy. According to Olasky, it’s a philosophy that could transform the current US welfare system for the better. And, it’s worked before. In his book, Compassionate…

Life & Faith: The Untold Story of Slavery

This month on Life & Faith, we’ve heard from experts and scholars about the influence of Christianity in the West. It’s all part of a sneak peek at our documentary due for release in 2016, For the Love of God: How the church is better and worse than you ever…

White-collar confessions

Cameron Watt got the shock of his life when he was sent to jail for two and a half years after being convicted of a white collar crime. In this interview he tells his story and - amazingly enough - explains why he’s grateful for the experience of life on…
