Professor Keith Ward, philosopher and theologian, talks through the issues thrown up by Richard Dawkins with a philosophical and scientific point of view.
"Why There Is Almost Certainly a God"
Can religious beliefs survive in the scientific age? Are they resoundingly outdated? Or, is there something in them of great importance, even if the way they are expressed will have to change given new scientific context? These questions are among those at the core of the science-religion dialogue.
Professor Keith Ward, retired Regius Professor of Divinity at Oxford University, investigates why many recent writers, like Richard Dawkins, have written vitriolic tracts against religion, which they regard as dangerous and immoral. Have they looked at the facts about the effects of religion in world history?
"Is Religion Dangerous?"
With over two billion adherents, Christianity is the world’s largest religion. However, with a multitude of denominations, and varying opinions on many central tenets, it can be difficult to obtain a balanced overview of this complex faith. Best-selling author Keith Ward provides a unique and authoritative introduction to Christianity that will reward both the curious and those seeking a deeper understanding of their religion.
