Justin Brierley, a broadcaster, author, and speaker, will join us September 22, 2023 at 7.00 pm in the Stone Chapel. He will offer a talk on his book, The Surprising Rebirth of Belief in God. The subtitle of the book is actually the big idea of the book: Why New Atheism Grew Old and Secular Thinkers Are Considering Christianity Again.
Who is Justin Brierley?
Justin lives in London. For decades he has been hosting conversations between atheists and believers on his popular show, The Unbelieveable Show. His show has been at the cutting edge of what is happening in culture.
A few years ago, he had Mark Lanier as a guest on his show, and he recently came into our Houston orbit. He is an amazing thinker, a gifted communicator, and hospitable host for people with differing worldviews.
About Brierley’s first book
After hosting his show for ten years, he wrote his first book: Unbelievable: Why After Ten Years of Talking with Atheists I’m Still a Christian. He shares some of that story here, in this podcast.
Here is what Philip Yancey has said of Justin’s upcoming book:
“[T]his wide-ranging and stimulating book sounds a hopeful note… a fearless engagement with the most daunting issues of our time.”
And John Lennox:
“Eminently readable… Brierley has done us a huge service… This is a first-rate book: get it, read it, and give it to others.”
