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.

Watch: 'Who Do You Think You Were?'

Commonly defined as a journey into the life of a person's previous incarnation, and guided by a hypnotherapist, past life regression stimulates heated debate amongst believers and sceptics. Neil Clarke is a disbeliever.
But, in Pinny Grylls' First Cut film, Neil, under hypnosis by Trevor Roberts, recounts the heartbreaking story of a 19th-century landowner, called Hawksworth, who loses his wife, his money and then his freedom when he commits manslaughter.
Neil's wife believes that these memories could have something to do with a traumatic experience in Neil's past that he has never dealt with. Driven by the emotions he experienced while he was hypnotised, Neil sets out to find out if Hawksworth really existed.
