To Be Alive Is An Extraordinary Gift
Strong religionists… weak religionists… after religionists… which one are you? “Religion is one of our most extraordinary creations; we can learn much about ourselves by interrogating it” believes Richard Holloway, formerly Bishop of Edinburgh and Primus of the Scottish Episcopal Church.

“To be alive at all is an extraordinary gift”, he says. “It’s a bit daft to use the one life you’re given to trample on the lives of others.” Richard has been challenging people all his life to examine how they live theirs – the paperback of his most recent book, “Between The Monster and the Saint”, is on sale now – if you enjoyed your time with Richard this week, buy it!
