Lost My Faith in Atheism - Alister McGrath
Alister McGrath was studying science at Oxford University. He knew that God didn’t exist because clearly if there really was evidence for God, science would have discovered it. And growing up in Northern Ireland during the 1960s, he had witnessed just how much violence religion could cause. To him, it seemed perfectly clear that a world free of religion would be a much better world.
While studying at Oxford University, McGrath started expanding his horizons by taking a second look at Christianity. What he discovered surprised him and then something happened. McGrath lost his faith in atheism. He realized that Christianity was not some intellectually vacuous belief system and that it actually made a lot of sense. After completing three doctorates in molecular biophysics, divinity, and intellectual history, he went on to teach at Oxford University and other respected institutions. He has devoted much of his life to explaining why Christianity makes sense.
