What is Crucible?

Crucible makes a tremendous contribution to the Church's social responsibility work, pulling together some of the best practitioners and thinkers in the field. In my view, a subscription is a vital tool for all who have a concern for the Church's work.

Stephen Platten

Chair of the Crucible Editorial board

Crucible is the Christian journal of social ethics. It is produced quarterly, pulling together some of the best practitioners, thinkers, and theologians in the field. Each issue reflects theologically on a key theme of political, social, cultural, or environmental significance.

The editors are John Atherton and John Reader.

Future issues will cover:

  • Education, Wellbeing and Children
  • Violence against Women
  • The Politics of Food
  • Responses to Genocide and Atrocity

Past issues (still available) have tackled:

  • Morality and the local community
  • Ethics and the State
  • Wellbeing in the 21st century
  • Pastoral Encounters and boundaries
  • Theology and Ethics
  • Islam in Britain

Every issue contains reviews of books relevant to the social ethics field.

Buy the latest issue of Crucible 'Education, Education, Education' , edited by John Reader as a print copy or as an ebook from Church House Bookshop.
