Weekly News Review from a Christian Viewpoint.
Patrick Woodward talks with the editor of the Mothers Union ‘Families First’ magazine, Catherine Butcher, about the latest news from a Christian perspective. Today, how the Mothers Union is helping prisoners not to re-offend when they leave jail, comparing Nelson Mandela – world statesman, with Robert Mugabe – a different sort of African leader, and how Bill Gates plans to use his time and money as he retires from Microsoft. Is there a new philanthropy directing the lives of the super-rich?
