Festival of Ideas: Peter Hitchens: How Atheism Drove me to Faith

by Geoff Hall on May 12, 2010

 At the Watershed Media Centre on Monday 17th May @ 6pm.

Peter Hitchens, Mail on Sunday, lost faith as a teenager. Eventually finding atheism barren, he came to his current affiliation to an unmodernised belief in Christianity. For Hitchens, faith is the best antidote to utopianism, dismissing the dangerous idea of earthly perfection, discouraging men and women from acting as if they were God, and encouraging men and women to act in the belief that there is a God and an ordered, purposeful universe, governed by an unalterable law. He explores these beliefs in this session.
Fee: £6.50 full / £4.50 concessions.
