On 4th April 2009, two men met at Biola University to debate the question of God’s existence in front of an overflow crowd and a global internet audience.
William Lane Craig is one of the world’s foremost Christian apologists, and Christopher Hitchens was an English-American author, philosopher, columnist, essayist, orator, journalist, and social critic – as well as a leading spokesman for the “new atheism” movement.
Their famous debate covered the origin and design of the universe, the implications of human morality, the deity of Jesus, and the validity of Christ’s resurrection.
It was a compelling clash of world views and a no-holds-barred examination of the major arguments for and against both Christianity and atheism.
This kind of event tends to polarise audiences, often to an extreme. However, if you can find the time to watch the debate with an open mind, you will be rewarded with an engaging, eloquent and thoughtful contest that brilliantly captures the two sides of an eternal question.
