1 Feb 2018 - In the 16th century, some of the greatest theological minds of that era began to read the Bible in new ways.

20 Nov 2017 - In Europe, when we speak of the future, it can seem a bit bleak. The economic crisis, lack of political vision and religious situation leave little room for hope.
