Life From the Dead

May 21, 2019 |

“You shall not die but live!” were the powerful words from the Bible that enabled one man to survive a deadly disease and walk out of hospital 14 days later.

Fifty-eight per cent of respondents to the government’s consultation (which ran from 19 July to 7 November 2018) said that the material proposed for primary schools was not “age-appropriate”.

Parents’ right to request opt out is “virtually toothless”, says Tim Vince
