The forgotten story of religious liberty

Welcome to the 2020 Richard Johnson Lecture - On Demand

We're so glad you can join us as Dr Sarah Irving-Stonebraker takes us all the way back to the ancient Middle East, and on a whirlwind tour through Europe, the Americas, and Australia, and asks: does the notion of religious liberty still have currency today?

Wherever you're watching from, we hope you find the lecture and Q&A session stimulating.

Re:CONSIDERING is a new series from Acorn Press and the CPX team that invites you to look at what's familiar from an unfamiliar angle; to consider how we consider things, and how to do it better.

The first two books - The Pleasures of Pessimism by Natasha Moore and The Cost of Compassion by Tim Costello - are now available.


We're excited to announce that we'll be holding a special conference in the second half of 2021!
