Contributors include: * Alistair Campbell * Steve Chalke * Delia Smith * Polly Toynbee * Giles Fraser * Shirley Williams * John Harris Chapters include: * Does the embryo have a soul? * Do we live in an over-sexualised society? * Is it right for religions to treat men and women differently? * What is a 'traditional family' and do we need it? * Do Christians really oppose same-sex marriage? * Should we legislate to permit assisted dying?
