This edition focuses on the Reformation, which has its 500th anniversary in 2017. Matthew Barrett asks whether the Reformation was simply a giant misunderstanding, while Ray Porter examines whether world mission was a blind spot for John Calvin and the other Reformers. Mike Ovey asks the question, 'What reformation would we stand for today?' and Robert Scott looks at claims that Islam needs a reformation of its own.
Other features explore a theology of migration, responses to the issue of transgender, why we make promises, and biblical ethics surrounding the screening of unborn children.
