How religion matters

By Press Office
March 17, 2011

Commenting on the launch of 'Critical Religion', Simon Barrow, co-director of the beliefs and values thinktank Ekklesia, a partner in the venture, said:

“Much of the public debate around ‘religion’ is bad-tempered and under-informed on all sides.

"We are delighted to be promoting, collaborating with and benefiting from the important cross-disciplinary work taking place at the University of Stirling.

"Like us, the University wants to deepen and broaden public understanding, enabling people with expertise to engage with a wider audience, and vice versa.”
