    The conservative evangelical group 'Reform' pulled out of the Church of England's 'shared conversations' on sexuality. Edward Stourton asks whether the deep divisions on this issue can ever be resolved. Social media, glossy videos and easy access Jihad magazines are all part the recruitment drive for extremist groups like the Islamic State. How are young people drawn in? In the second of three special reports on what ordinary Catholics think about their Church's teaching on family life, Kevin Bocquet speaks to school children and university students. Plus the Chinese American Christian pastor Bob Fu speaks to Edward about the growth of Christianity in China despite ongoing persecution, and talks about his life as a student leader in the Tiananmen Square protests. And the Church Times has released its 'top 10 Christian books'. We pick through the list and discuss how theological writing can appeal to the modern reader.
