This week (18 October issue)

The Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles are back in town in a new movie. But being selfless and laying one's life on the line to save others is tough - and Jesus is the ultimate demonstration.

Meanwhile philosopher Professor Roger Trigg discusses his beliefs and claims that 'rationality is built into the heart of Christianity'; and scientists are now saying there is reliable evidence of survival after death. We also say that it is possible to not worry and be happy.

Also this week in the print edition:

• Salvation Army reports an increase in numbers of trafficked victims in the UK.
• Trafficking in Greece - a doctor brings a film report to the UK highlighting the issue.
• Sherlock Holmes becomes the object of investigation at the Museum of London.
• Ex-England skipper Tony Adams supports Salvation Army football tournament.
• Research shows drivers are taking their safety for granted; and driverless cars are on their way.
• Some punishments fit the crime - but God offers us a second chance.
• Sweet and savoury 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.
