Martyn Percy reviews Science, Religion and the Meaning of Life,
by Mark Vernon. With a delicate blend of deft coolness and fervour, Mark Vernon argues the case for "Christian agnosticism":
a positive engagement with the complexity of philosophy, science, modernity, and religious belief, which passionately restates the value
of a more temperate grasp of knowledge.
Nicholas Holtam reviews Is
Religion Dangerous? by Keith Ward. Despite Ward's hanging the book on refuting
Dawkins, 'this book is a well-written Christian apologetic with passages that take off brilliantly.'
John Pridmore reviews Adults
as Children: Images of Childhood in the Ancient World and the New Testament, by James M. M. Francis.
Lavinia Byrne reviews Mother Teresa:
Saint or celebrity?, by Gëzim Alpion who explores whether or not Mother Teresa engaged with the media and manipulated
it, and 'argues that while she "hated the media per se . . . she never ceased using every medium of mass communication. In
her own words: 'the press make people aware of the poor and that is worth any sacrifice on my part.'"

of the Gospel in Foreign Parts.
