This week on Sunday Morning with me, Cathy Macdonald, my guest in the first hour of the show is award-winning author and journalist, and former Moscow Bureau Chief of Staff for the Guardian newspaper - James Meek.
Now a full time writer, he talks about his life, his latest book - The Heart Broke In - a tale of morality in modern Britain, and how his experiences of other cultures taught him about the human condition.
In the second hour we explore why today's youth fail to engage with organised religion after a recent BBC survey on morality revealed they thought that looking after your family was more important than following a religion.
I'll be finding out how the increasing number of food banks have helped put churches back into the heart of communities.
Author and journalist Julie Davidson explains why Mrs Livingstone was just as tough as her famous missionary husband, David, although she has more or less been overlooked by history.
And as an international tour of sacred Buddha relics comes to Edinburgh, whose theme is to encourage inter-faith dialogue I'll be welcoming custodian, Siliana Bosa, who explains why they have such an impact on those who come into contact with them.
All this and the usual excellent selection of music, listen in between 7am-9pm this Sunday Morning With Cathy Macdonald.
