This week (19 April issue)

Christians celebrate the Resurrection of Jesus this weekend. We affirm our hope with an Easter poem and a first-person visit to the site of the Flanders Fields. We also examine why an image of Jesus was banned from the London Underground, and affirm why Easter is the most important and deeply significant Christian celebration.

Also this week in the print edition:

• The Salvation Army's international leader, Andre Cox, says materialism can never address the deepest longings of our hearts; salvation is found in no one other than Jesus.
• How The Salvation Army helped a gambling addict get his life back on track.
• Why a Mansfield vicar gave up food - entirely - and how his fast has been a life-changing experience.
• Street artist Sandy Duff talks about his team's contribution to the BBC's 'Great North Passion' and tells of his Christian motivation.

Plus more - puzzles, recipes, cartoons - in this special Easter issue of Britain's most popular religious weekly - fighting for hearts and souls.
