Colin Bell joined the Faraday Institute to work on a joint project with the Kirby Laing Institute for Christian Ethics on ‘Hope for creation: a biblical vision for contemporary environmental policy’. This project involved research, writing, organising a conference and editing a follow-up book. He is now involved in two other projects: editing a second book on creation care for the Lausanne Movement, and producing and delivering resources on faith, values and environmental issues for schools and church youth groups.
Colin Bell has an MSc in Mathematics from the University of Cambridge, following which he worked in computing and science research, and more recently an MA in Theology from the London School of Theology, specialising in the question of applying the Bible, particularly the Old Testament, to contemporary societies, ethics and environmental issues. He currently supports the institute in a variety of roles.
