Religion is rarely out of the news. But how much of it is simply "bad faith" for humanity and the planet? Simon Barrow reflects theologically on current events (and cultural blips) from an engaged Christian perspective. FaithInSociety seeks a conversation between reason and hope, shaped by the subversive memory of the Gospel.

A writer, commentator, theologian and educator, I am co-director of Ekklesia, the think-tank and news service concerned with religion and public life from a radical, post-Christendom perspective. I also work as a trainer, facilitator and consultant with church and community initiatives, as well as continuing to publish for a wide variety of audiences - from general to academic. Football and music are my balancing passions. From 1996-2005 I worked for Churches Together in Britain and Ireland (CTBI), the official ecumenical body.
