Matters of Life and Death

The book reconsidered, the Moscow State University reading list, audiobooks, and the decline of the reading Christian

Twenty-four years ago, I published the book which gave this podcast its name: Matters of Life and Death. My first foray into Christian writing and teaching on ethics, it’s now available as an audiobook for the first time which we’re using as an excuse to do a short retrospective. How does the book stand up to scrutiny today? Would I change anything about it if I was writing it from scratch? Why has it been influential, even beyond the UK’s shores? And what has the experience told me about the miracle of the written word and its power to engage and shape minds across time and space?

You can find the audiobook on Audible.
