This week (27 September issue)

Some movies mirror real life, and new comedy 'What We Did on our Holiday' is one of them; there's childish behaviour going on, but we have to work out what really matters. And David Nicholls's new novel 'Us' highlights difficulties in relationships too. So we all need to find the one person we can trust - Jesus.

Real life can be harsh, and it's then we need that trust. This was the experience of Jennifer Heaton, who tells what it was like when her son took his own life, and how she coped. And our Bible series focuses on how Jesus treated children.

Meanwhile our Comment urges wisdom following the Scotland referendum.

Also this week in the print edition:

• Soctland's politicians unite at cathedral service.
• 'Gogglebox' vicar Kate talks about religious broadcasting.
• New musical 'Love Beyond' takes over Wembley Arena for two weeks.
• Christianity is a key ingredient for Martha in 'Bake-Off'.
• 'Songs of Praise' looks for Britain's best Gospel Choir.
• Startling statistics on Britain's mental health.
• Looking to the skies brings comfort and strength.
• More tasty savouries from chef Michael Darracott.

Plus more news, views, media, puzzles and cartoons, all in this issue of Britain's most popular religious weekly - fighting for hearts and souls.
