The Lively Quarterly Newsletter of the Council for Secular Humanism

The Secular Humanist Bulletin (SHB) is the 16 page newsletter of the Council for Secular Humanism. It is available by subscription. SHB subscriptions are separate from subscriptions to FREE INQUIRY.


SHB provides a lively forum for humanists to explore the joys and challenges of living without religion. SHB reports on the Council's many activities and plans, and it gives updates on church-state news and other humanist issues. It also debates the full range of secular humanist viewpoints, and gives readers the chance to explore how secular humanism can meet their needs and interests.


Whether you want to learn more about secular humanism, or you want to share ideas on how to put humanist principles into practice in your everyday life, SHB is essential reading.
