Welcome to our features and projects pages, with material ranging from the satirical to the theological. Our archive pages, with material going back (gulp) 10 years, are currently offline, but will be available as soon as we've finished cataloging them.

Je Suis Charlie   Reading the Bible upside-down
When Symon Hill started writing a book about the parables of Jesus, he didn't turn to commentaries and sermons, but to people who had never heard the words of Jesus before, including atheists, trade unionists and sex workers. The result is a revelation.
Je Suis Charlie   Beware the warrior archaeologists
A church at the site where Jesus is said to have fed 5,000 people was torched this week – another in a long line of violent desecrations. Rowan Williams explains how "warrior archaeologists" are systematically attempting to manipulate the past and use it as a weapon.
Je Suis Charlie   Religion must be a laughing matter
