Where: Bethlehem Community Church Center – 183 Moffat Rd, Bethlehem
Event Format: Live Presentation followed by Q&A and discussions
In this presentation, Dr Kumar will examine the objections to religion put forward by the New Atheists, showing how they fail the tests of reason, history and common sense. He will then weigh Christianity against the atheist view of the world and show how Christianity better accounts for the source of morality, meaning and truth.
Dr Kumar has been speaking and writing about questions of religion and philosophy for over twenty five years. He is a frequent debater and guest speaker at universities and conferences throughout Europe, Asia and the Pacific and is the author of many books, including Christianity for Skeptics.
Thinking Matters is an inter-denominational group where you can come to analyse and discuss some of the deeper issues of the Christian faith in the areas of Philosophy, Science and Apologetics (see definitions here
The purpose is to make Christian truth claims more relevant to an increasingly sceptical and secular culture, showing the reasons why we believe what we believe and providing answers that simply make sense.
It’s open to Christian and Non-Christian alike – anyone who is seeking the truth in philosophy, science and scripture. You don’t need a philosophy or a theology degree to be able to understand the speakers.
