Religion in Personal Life

Full Product Description

Does the embryo have a 'soul'? Do we live in an over-sexualised society? Is it right for religions to treat men and women differently? What is a 'traditional family' and do we need it? Do Christians really oppose same-sex marriage? Should we legislate to permit assisted dying? What do some of society's leading thinkers and public figures have to say about these crucial questions? More importantly, what do you have to say about them? Religion and Personal Life presents the highlights of the Westminster Faith Debates, a unique series of public conversations on some of the most provocative questions that arise when personal life choices intersect with religious faith and practice. It also presents the latest thinking and research in an accessible form. Contributors representing different faith traditions and belief systems, including non-religious, include Tina Beattie, Steve Chalke, Giles Fraser, John Harris, Mary Ann Sieghart, Polly Toynbee and Shirley Williams. Their presentations and the cut-and-thrust of each ensuing debate are reproduced here. The book also includes Delia Smith's public debate with Alastair Campbell on the topic of 'Why do God?'
The highlights of each debate are followed by questions to prompt further reflection and discussion, and YouGov statistics commissioned to inform the debates. The book has been designed for ease of use by anybody keen to engage with these important issues, and will have particular value to leaders of group discussions in schools, colleges and universities. Read a sample chapter here: The Westminster Faith Debates were organised by the Rt Hon Charles Clarke, former Home Secretary, and Linda Woodhead, Professor of Politics, Philosophy and Religious Studies at Lancaster University. Linda has prepared this book with Norman Winter, formerly of BBC Radio 4, and she and Charles open and close each debate with new commentary and reflection.
