Life & Faith: For the Love of God

Were you there?

Professor Tom McLeish is a theoretical physicist at Durham University and the author of Faith & Wisdom in Science. Here he speaks about whether his scientific knowledge tips him towards or away from his Christian faith; what it means to live with open questions; and what the human desire for…

The Joy of Creation

The greatest trick the Devil ever pulled, according to criminal mastermind Keyser Soze of The Usual Suspects, was convincing people he didn't exist. Maybe another in Lucifer's devilish bag of tricks was getting us to think that Christmas is just for kids – hence the annual rituals of happy snaps…

In defence of the nativity play

The nativity story is one of the treasures of our cultural storehouse and it has meaning for us whether you think it's historical fact or just a myth. Let's not stop telling it, writes Natasha Moore. The kid is maybe eight years old. She's bursting to tell Mum the news.…

Life & Faith: Was there a baby in the manger?

In light of a Church of England survey that found that as many as 4 in 10 British people don’t believe Jesus was a real person, historian John Dickson explains why the academy is in no such doubt that Jesus existed. We also discuss the meaning and significance of the…
