From The Rev David Kingdon

Sir: Jim Murphy, president of the National Union of Students, comments on the findings of a survey among Oxbridge students showing that Jesus Christ is the most admired person and the Bible is the most favoured book (report, 11 December). You quote him as saying: "I am surprised and shocked. I have never heard anything like it before."

I am even more surprised at his surprise. Does he not know that on a significant number of campuses the Christian Union is frequently the largest and most active student society?

Yours faithfully,

David P. Kingdon
