Unfortunately the media company which was uploading our podcasts to iTunes is no longer working with audio files. As a result there are currently two Jubilee Centre accounts in iTunes, and all podcasts up to the end of 2011 are on the old account, which is accessible here:
Until we have resolved this problem, please access all pre-2012 podcasts directly by using the above link, as the buttons on the individual resource pages will send you to the new Jubilee Centre account, which only has the most recent podcasts.
We apologise for this inconvenience, and hope you can still find the recording you are looking for!

This draft report summarises our research to date on education in the Bible. Starting from first principles, it aims to shed light on how education is approached in the Bible, including the vital question of its ultimate purpose.
Surveying the different attitudes and approaches through biblical history, with particular emphasis on the Wisdom literature, it concludes by making some tentative suggestions for application in our own education system.

This report responds to the Conservative Party's draft education policy. It begins by summarising the most important points of the policy and offers an overview of some of the major Christian principles of education. It then looks at the policy implications and how parents and other interested parties might help found and shape the new schools created by this initiative. The intention is to identify key opportunities and how such groups might engage with these, and the policy issues that it is hoped the Conservatives will address.

'What this book may call us to is the revitalisation of politics as a whole.' (Dr Peter Selby, former Bishop of Worcester)
Votewise Now! argues that politics should be first and foremost about right relationships, and that the best way to 'do' politics is to engage with the things that really concern people.
Containing ten concise chapters written by experts in their field, this helpful volume examines 'the most important issues facing Britain today'. After outlining the key debates within each, Votewise Now! turns to biblical teaching for a Christian perspective, and then offers a series of principles against which readers may evaluate party promises and so vote wisely. The book concludes with a Christian MP from each of the UK's three main political parties responding to the question, 'Why should a Christian vote for your party?'

The Jubilee Centre has worked with the Evangelical Alliance's Forum for Change Education Cluster to draft a shared 'Point of View' on Education. This seeks to express a common position on what Christians think about education and aims to address the Church, the educational community and the wider society.

Despite the fact that over half the British population still identify themselves as Christian, our political leaders now insist that many Christian institutions cannot receive public funding. Even those who would argue in favour of creating Christian universities in Britain today, as Nigel Paterson does in his latest Cambridge Paper, ‘Do we need a Christian university?’, accept that there are a number of barriers that make this unlikely. In countries where governments are hostile to Christian institutions, is there any alternative?

The concept of a university was substantially a Christian innovation, yet most modern universities are secular institutions. This paper surveys briefly the historical background which shows how this came about and the institutional landscape of higher education today. Next, biblical perspectives applicable to all Christians involved in higher education are explored. At the heart of the paper, there lies a discussion of the arguments for and against a Christian university, and the characteristics of such a new Christian university, as envisaged by the author, are presented. The paper is intended to provoke readers across the world to thought, discussion and a more informed response to the many possibilities for Christian service within higher education.
