The Essence of Christianity

Rupert Sheldrake and I have published the latest in our Science Set Free podcasts, discussing the essence of Christianity.

Now is a good moment to assess the essence of Christianity, to consider what lies at its heart. as we live in a period during which Christianity isn’t disappearing but is routinely rubbing shoulders with other religions and none.

In this episode of the Science Set Free podcast, we ask what values and consciousness Christianity has helped develop – partly in response to a series of films I have made with The Idler Academy, entitled A History of Christianity in 11 Short Chapters.

We ask about Christianity as an inner spiritual and outer social phenomenon; the role it played at the end of the axial age in valuing the individual person; what happened so that it became a world religion; and what Christianity is becoming today.
