    20. The Logos Behind Life: The dissident scientists discovering a mind beyond matter

    20. The Logos Behind Life: The dissident scientists discovering a mind beyond matter

    Why did Antony Flew, one of the world's leading atheists, announce in 2004 that he believes in God? Why did atheist philosopher Thomas Nagel's 2012 book 'Mind And Cosmos' get him labelled as a heretic by his peers?
    Justin Brierley explores why the discovery of the DNA code, the search for the origin of life, the complexity of the cell, and the mathematical order of the universe are leading many scientists to speak of agency, purpose, and a 'Logos' behind life.
    He also hears from dissident thinkers such as Stephen Meyer, Roger Penrose, John Lennox, Denis Noble and Perry Marshall about the surprising rebirth of belief in a mind beyond matter. Biologist Sy Garte also tells his story of how as an atheist scientist, he was surprised by God.

    19. A Goldilocks Universe - The surprising science pointing to God

    19. A Goldilocks Universe - The surprising science pointing to God

    New Atheism proclaimed that science had buried God. However, as new evidence about the surprising origins of the universe and its fine-tuning for life has emerged, perhaps God was waiting for us all along.
    Justin speaks to scientists and thinkers including Jennifer Wiseman, John Lennox and Stephen Meyer. Peter Byrom also examines whether Richard Dawkins' best-known objection to a 'complex' God really holds water.

    18. The Alternative Story Of Science

    18. The Alternative Story Of Science

    The New Atheists used science as their trump card against religion. But what if we've been sold a false story about 'science vs faith'? Justin speaks to scientists, historians and thinkers about modern myths, the conflict thesis and the Christians who launched the scientific revolution.
    Along the way we hear from Peter Atkins, David Hutchings, John Lennox, Tim O'Neill, Sarah Irving-Stonebraker and Jennifer Wiseman. Justin also hears the surprising story of how tech pioneer Ros Picard came to faith.

    17. Live In London: Tom Holland & Justin Brierley in conversation

    Historian Tom Holland, author of 'Dominion', joins Justin Brierley for a public conversation on The Surprising Rebirth Of Belief In God. They discuss Holland's own intellectual and spiritual journey, including an answered prayer to a health crisis. 
    But is the renewed interest in the value of faith among secular intellectuals evidence of a turning of the tide of faith? Justin Brierley is optimistic, Holland takes a more sanguine view. The event was hosted by LICC's Paul Woolley and Grace Fielding at Westminster Chapel, London with Q&A from a 600-strong audience.

A tonic to modern life

This podcast breathes hope into my life, where sometimes there is so little. I look forward to it every fortnight with great enthusiasm as it touches my heart with its positive message. Definitely worth listening to, in fact it is my favourite podcast and a tonic to this modern life.

Hope so

I hope the premise of this podcast is true. But over several decades I have heard people predicting the rebirth of such and such, and it has never been quite true.
Even so, it is a very good podcast.

Woodpecker 37 ,

Excellent

I’m really enjoying this series. Respectful but challenging engagement with atheists and others; lots of fascinating insights.
