Commending Christ: Apologetics in a Sceptical Culture

Does Christian faith really make sense? Can it be credible in today’s world? How shall we best explain to others what we believe? Can we handle hard questions about life, death and suffering, about value, purpose and the uniqueness of Jesus Christ? Can we disagree respectfully, without sliding into arrogance or ridicule?

Monday 26th February, 7.30 - 9.00pm at the University of Sheffield: Justin Brierley

(in the Council Chambers at the Octagon Centre, University of Sheffield, S10 2TQ).

Justin Brierley is a radio presenter and journalist based in London. For the past ten years he has been inviting sceptics and particularly atheists to join a conversation on air at Premier Christian Radio about their objections to Christian faith. His guests have included Philip Pullman, Susan Blackmore, A.C. Grayling, Derren Brown and Richard Dawkins, in addition to some leading proponents of other faiths. One outcome of these conversations is his recent book: Unbelievable? Why, after ten years of talking with atheists, I’m still a Christian.

In his lecture on Monday evening Justin will share some of what he has learned through these conversations. He will also help us think about how to handle our disagreements constructively and how all of us can better understand and relate to those who challenge our beliefs.
