William Lane Craig to Tour UK in October

Spread the love

From here:


In October 2011, William Lane Craig, arguably the world’s leading Christian academic apologist, will once again visit the UK for a series of lectures and debates. Following his highly successful Reasonable Faith Tour in 2007, Bill will again present the case for the truth of the Christian faith, responding both to Stephen Hawking’s recent book The Grand Design as well as to Richard Dawkins’ The God Delusion, which will then have just seen its 5 year publication anniversary.

Richard Dawkins has thus far declined a debate, but the door is open to him defending his book The God Delusion on 25th October 2011 at the Sheldonian Theatre, Oxford.

The details of the tour are still being arranged, and the schedule below will be updated as events are finalised.

    I’ll be hosting the first event of the schedule – Stephen Law (stepping in for the cold footed Polly Toynbee) vs William Lane Craig.

    Even if you don;t live in the UK – could you tell any UK dwellers you know about it…

    There’s also a facebook page and events FB page

    Justin, our very own (UK resident) Dr Elizabeth Liddle would like to take on Dr Craig. She is a tower of intellectual balance, with nary an equivocation to be found.

    Would you mind setting that up for us?
