This week on Quantum we concentrate solely on Afghanistan. Do you know the biblical connection to Afghanistan? We look at President Biden’s actions and words; the implications for the West, China, the Afghan Church, the Afghan people. We hear two extraordinary speeches – one from the UK Parliament, and another from the British defence chief of staff; We also look at Aayan Hirsi Ali and Lily Cole’s reactions. Twitter, the Taliban and Trump. We hear some Afghan rock music and worship music. We also reflect on the life of Andrew Walls – and our podcast of the week – Coffee House Shots.
