by the Rev. E. F. Carpenter, Canon of Westminster.
Some Christians regard the married state as a metaphysical union. Some insist that the recorded words of Jesus 'lay down the law'.

Talk by Tom Soper, Sub-Warden of Queen Elizabeth House, Oxford.
In 1951 eighty per cent of the population of England and Wales was classified as urban and under twenty per cent as rural. A hundred years earlier the proportions had been equal.
Reviewing Victor Bonham-Carter's recent book Darlington Hall: the history of an experiment, Mr. Soper assesses the attempt to re-establish a rural economy in South Devon.
