  • God in Us

    A Case for Christian Humanism

    God In Us is a radical representation of the Christian faith for the 21st century. Following the example of the Old Testament prophets and the first-century Christians it overturns received ideas about God. God is not an invisible person 'out there' somewhere, but lives in the human heart and mind as 'the sum of all our values and ideals'.

    Getting to Grips with the Paranormal
    (Edited by)

    How does the conscious mind relate to the physical body? In The Emergence of Consciousness philosopher Robert Van Gulick gives a clear and masterly overview and comparison of the current 'emergent' and ‘reductive’ approaches. Other contributors discuss more detailed aspects of the subject.
