Life & Faith: Notes on Blindness

John Hull began losing his sight in his mid-forties. He describes it as a dark black disc that slowly progressed over his field of vision. “Do remember that day when I caught a glimpse of a church spire?” the Australian theologian asks his wife, Marilyn, in the documentary film, Notes…

Bach for the Cello

“By mathematics we shall come to heaven …” Rowan Williams is not only a former Archbishop of Canterbury and Master of Magdalene College, Cambridge, but also a poet. Listen to him read and - with equal clarity and grace - explain his poem “Bach for the Cello”. Simon Smart interviewed…

The meaningful universe

“Is there a God? Of course not. What is the meaning of the universe? It doesn’t have any. What is the purpose of life? Ditto. Is there a difference between right and wrong, good and bad? There’s not a moral difference between them. What is the nature of the relationship…
