Prof. Alister McGrath (Oxford)
3 November 2017 (Friday) | 7 - 8:30 pm | HKU Moot Court
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 (Oxford University) has written best-selling studies of each of these fascinating authors. 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.
Alister McGrath holds the Andreas Idreos Professorship in Science and Religion at the University of Oxford. Having begun his career as a scientist, he now holds three doctorates from the University of Oxford: a DPhil in Molecular Biophysics, a Doctor of Divinity in Theology, and a Doctor of Letters in Intellectual History. McGrath is particularly noted for his work on the relationship between science and religion.
