The economy versus human life: have we oversimplified the debate?

By JubileeCentre 12 May 2020

This week the Jubilee Centre team unpacks Freddie Sayers’s article ‘Which epidemiologist do you believe?’ It’s a conversation that explores how we frame the pandemic based on our understanding of the telos of society. As ever, we ask, how can we think biblically about this issue? Specifically, can 2 Samuel 24 offer us insight into leadership and disaster?

Modern Spirituality: learning from the poets

This Cambridge Paper offers a brief account of current alternative spiritual practices before asking what it is like to negotiate the tension between the assumptions of secularity and the impulses towards extra-ordinary forms of experience. Some of the richest accounts of modern spirituality come from the 1930s, and this paper examines some of the period’s profoundest poetic explorations of belief.
