Jubilee Centre Events, May 2010
At our day conference in May, a variety of speakers helped us consider the search for relational hope in the 21st century. It was opened by politics professor and pastor Dale Kuehne, for whom Perry Miller's phrase 'Standing on the threshold of an inconceivable age' encapsulates what it is to look out into a postmodern future.

We live at a moment where it is not an exaggeration to say that our world is undergoing a relational holocaust. This 2010 lecture examines how we got here, why we can't go backward to try and recover what we lost, but why there is good reason to hope that we can move beyond iWorld (a world that lives for me) in which we presently reside and work together to build the rWorld where relationships can be made anew.
Jubilee Centre Videos, April 2010
The spirit of our age is captured by offers of interest-free credit, invitations to "Buy one get one free" and slogans such as "I did it my way", "Time for change" and "Yes we can!" ... but have you ever stopped to ask what we are really buying into?
This short video invites you to take a fresh look at life and begin a life-changing journey of discovery!

Jubilee Centre is delighted to introduce its life-changing new book:
'This important and counter-cultural book demands nothing less than loving Christ in all we do.' (Rev Richard Cunningham, Director of UCCF: The Christian Unions)
'If we can put its message into practice, we will make a difference not just to our lives but the lives of many others.' (Noel Richards, songwriter and worship leader)
In these economically constrained times, the Bible's emphasis on freedom and love offers both relief from the burdens we carry and a radical new way to live. The release from slavery and debt that lay at the heart of Israel's cycle of Jubilee celebrations reveals that the whole of the Law and Prophets, as fulfilled by Christ, is about loving God and loving our neighbour. But in practice it's difficult not to be influenced by consumerism and individualism. How do we guard against this? How can we apply our faith in practical ways? What disciplines may we put in place to help us worship God in every area of our lives?
Encompassing the breadth of all the research that the Jubilee Centre has undertaken over more than quarter of a century, and serving as a companion volume to Jubilee Manifesto, this is a very practical guide to applying our faith to every area of our lives - not just the most obvious ones but also the thousands of seemingly trivial financial, emotional, spiritual and relational exchanges with which our days are filled.
Dale Kuehne, September 2009
Examining current issues pertaining to sexuality and society, pastor and politics professor Dale Kuehne asks, 'What kind of world are we creating? And is it a world that is actually harming us more than benefiting us?'
With a cordial openness to responses from all points of view, Kuehne contrasts the long-established 'tWorld', in which traditional morality reigned and recent innovations would have been inconceivable, with the post-Enlightenment 'iWorld', in which these innovations are promoted because the perceived immediate needs of the individual are paramount. Both, he finds, fall short of the more biblical 'rWorld', in which a larger web of healthy and nourishing social relationships provides the most personally fulfilling context for sexuality and relational well-being.

Enhancement involves giving abilities integral to the body beyond those we would normally consider a human to possess. Transhumanism is an influential philosophy based on human autonomy in which enhancement technologies play a central role. This paper summarises transhumanism, describes the scope of current enhancing technologies, and provides a Christian critique, presenting the biblical strategy for human transformation as a compelling alternative to the transhumanist project.

John Hayward, June 2009
Our latest Cambridge Paper, Enhancing Humans or a New Creation?, considers three levels of enhancement: the trivial (includes vaccination and contact lenses), the conventional (includes cosmetic surgery and the non-therapeutic use of drugs for cognitive enhancement), and the transhumanist. It concludes that, although trivial and conventional enhancements represent no threat to Christian faith, the kind of self-help through technology offered by transhumanism stands in stark contrast to the human transformation and positive relational alternative that is found in Christ.
