LATEST UPDATE: The Independent publishes Ed Kessler's 'A-Z of Believing: M is for Martyrdom'

'God on the Pitch', New Podcast in the Encounter Series

18th June 2018

The World Cup is in full swing. After 11 matches last week, England face their first match against Tunisia today. On this momentous occasion, we at the Woolf sat down to discuss how religion plays a role on the pitch. Is football the new religious experience? Does it transcend our human differences or reinforce them? Most importantly, who will emerge victorious in Moscow on July 15th, and is God on their side? Featuring Ed Kessler, Esther-Miriam Wagner, Jessica Tearney-Pearce and Rodrigo Garcia-Velasco Bernal.

Encounter is a discussion podcast produced by the Woolf Institute and presented by its Founder Director Dr Ed Kessler. Episodes will explore the relationship between religion and society. Join Ed and guests as they navigate their way through some of society's most debated topics.
