God, Science and the Meaning of Life: C.S. Lewis and Richard Dawkins

Watch the video online.

C. S. Lewis is one of the best-known Christian apologists in the world. Richard Dawkins is one of the best-known atheist apologists in the world. Alister McGrath has written best-selling studies of each of these fascinating thinkers. So what do they have to say on the meaning of life? How do they understand the role of the natural sciences in helping us work out the meaning of life? In this lecture, Professor McGrath will engage in dialogue with these writers in exploring some of the biggest questions of life.

The talk is part of the Distinguished Lecturer series of Faith and Global Engagement.
