Last week saw the launch of From Goodness to God a Theos report and based on a new book by Centre Director Angus Ritchie. Both texts argue that religion has a unique ability to make sense of our moral commitments. You can listen to the launch debate – where Angus is in conversation with atheist philosopher Julian Baggini and agnostic Mark Vernon.
Angus’ report is part of a wider research stream at CTC on the role of faith in public life. His argument is that we cannot completely separate questions about the intellectual credibility of Christianity from questions about its role in the public square. That’s why CTC is participating in two major research partnerships on these issues – the Contending Modernities programme of the University of Notre Dame and a research programme on religious and secular philosophy at the University of Oxford. You can keep up to date with developments by following our Contending Modernities and Philosophy posts respectively.
