This week (20 September issue)

Downton Abbey returns to TV screens this week, and carries a family guilty secret; we say we can be free from all our guilty secrets. Ard Louis, Professor of Theoretical Physics at Oxford, in his exclusive interview continues to talk about the evidence for God. We find that Jesus votes for women, and this week's Comment stands up against anti-Semitism and prejudice of any kind.

Also this week in the print edition:

• Council of Christians and Jews builds relationships.
• Salvation Army multiplies its team fighting Ebola in Liberia.
• Campaigners set Sustainable Development Goals to tackle climate change.
• New movie tells of Nick Cave's idea of transformation.
• Ann Widdecombe shares the jokes.
• Advice for first-time house buyers.
• God is  Father who will never let us down, says Barbara.
• 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.
