Clare Balding hosts the topical faith show and talks to singer-songwriter, Rachael Sage and Grammy Award winning legendary singer, Judy Collins. The two women from different generations have recorded a duet of Neil Young's classic, 'Helpless'.
Clare Balding talks to Peter Stanford about his latest book, “Judas”.
Judas Iscariot is one of the most vilified of Bible characters, famously betraying Jesus with a kiss. Author, Peter Stanford explores how the very name of Judas has come to be synonymous with evil over the course of 2,000 years. But who was he really? Was Judas in fact a scapegoat? A misunderstood character? Or even a victim of injustice? Why has he increasingly become a hate figure over time? Peter tells Clare why he wrote the book and shows how the character of Judas has been portrayed throughout history.
Judas by Peter Stanford is published on 2nd April by Hodder and Stoughton.
