DAVID BOULTON’s early work in broadcasting, as Editor of the weekly investigative television programme World in Action and head of Granada Television’s Dramadocumentary Unit won him the Royal Television Society’s Cyril Bennett Award “for creative services to broadcasting” in 1981. His documentary film The Gingerbread Revolution on the fall of Communism in Czechoslovakia won him an International Emmy Award in 1991.

Since then, it is his books and articles exploring the interface between humanism and progressive Christianity that have won him an international readership and acclaim as a speaker and workshop leader. Both a Quaker and a Humanist, he is convenor of the Nontheist Friends Network and 2012 President of Friends Historical Society (UK).



David has written for many publications, including most recently The Guardian, The Observer, New Internationalist, New Humanist, Sofia and Quaker journals including The Friend, Friends Quarterly, Journal of the Friends Historical Society and Proceedings of the Quaker Theology Seminar.
