Prof Richard Swinburne is one of the most influential Christian philosophers in the world. In his new book ‘Are we Bodies or Souls?’ he sets out his argument for the existence of the soul.

Luke Janssen has a background in science and theology. In his new book ‘Soul-Searching: The Evolution of Judeo-Christian Thinking on the Soul and the Afterlife’ he makes the case that our experience of personal identity can be explained through physical brain processes. However, he does not believe this contradicts Christianity.
