Welcome to the Theology News Blog - an attempt to provide a 'one-stop shop' for all news stories, podcasts and TV programming related to religion, philosophy and the theory of knowledge (TOK). It grew out of a similar site created for GCSE and A-Level/IB students in students but is now being offered as an open-to-all resource. It will hopefully be of use to any and all with an interest in these subjects. For notification of all updates either follow us by email or on Twitter (@theologynews) by clicking on the links in the right-hand column. For my own theological writing, please follow the link in the right-hand column to my other blog.

Listen to: 'Everyday Ethics: Poker, Drugs and Nuclear Power'
Why is professional poker illegal in Northern Ireland? Paul Feldstein makes the case for change to the Reverend David McIlveen. We also debate the moral case for nuclear power with the environmental activist George Monbiot. And a leading drugs expert tells us why he thinks sporting bodies need to re-write their drugs policies.
