The War Cry

The War Cry is Britain's iconic Christian weekly. 

From arts and culture to health and sport, The War Cry is packed with features, comment, reviews, mouth-watering recipes, puzzles and much more...

This week - 21 May 2016

Controversial decisions. Joy. Disappointment. Relief. Even before fans have passed through the turnstiles for the FA Cup and Scottish Cup finals.

In this week's comment, we look at what people think about church sermons. 

The Rev Dr Andrew Davison talks to Nigel Bovey and theology and natural sciences.

In this week's Bible study, Rosemary Dawson considers everyday ideas that go way back to the 66 books of the Bible.

Also this week in the print edition:

  • It doesn't have to be the end in the latest X-men superheroes film, X-men Apocalypse.
