Former atheist biologist-turned-Christian theologian Alister McGrath returns to the show. His new book ‘The Great Mystery’ argues that we need both science and faith to understand our place in the universe and the quest for human meaning.

Atheist scientist Colin Blakemore is Emeritus Professor of Neuroscience at Oxford University. He engages Alister, explaining why he believes the human quest for meaning can be explained by evolution and the brain.
