This week (25 October issue)

This week's front page takes its cue from a new comedy movie featuring the ageless Jane Fonda - but finds that family relationships are not necessarily an easy matter. However, our 'Mood Music' series urges us not to worry.

There are immense difficulties in tackling the ebola outbreak, and our Comment says that those putting themselves at risk ministering in Africa deserve respect, thanks and prayers; and in the second part of our exclusive interview philosopher Professor Roger Trigg says he believes we are all here for a purpose.

Also this week in the print edition:

• Claire Brine visits the studios of a unique TV station in Egypt and finds a message of peace, hope and reconciliation.
• TV's 'Homeland' is back - a story in which no one can be trusted. So where can we put our trust?
• How many people are taken in by fake goods? A salutary story of a garden centre orchid.
• Staged 'slave sale' at Sheffield railway station highlights human trafficking.
• Christian relief work follows India cyclone.
• BBC2 follows the work of hospital chaplains.
• Ex-Communard star the Rev Richard Coles talks of his need for forgiveness.
• Men can reduce risk of heart disease by healthy lifestyle choices.
• Tasty traditional recipes 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
