The Surprising Rebirth of Belief in God | with Justin Brierley – Part 1

Could we be witnessing a return of belief in God during our generation? It seems that the Christian narrative that shaped the West has been replaced by sweeping secularism. But is that the end of the story?

In recent years, a number of highly intellectual atheists have abandoned their secularism and found themselves surprised by the continuing resonance and relevance of Christianity in today’s modern world. Is it possible that the new atheist movement is now dealing with a massive downward spiral of its own? And what’s pushing this new generation of secular thinkers to reconsider the Christian worldview in a positive light?

This week, Frank speaks with the one and only Justin Brierley, former host of the popular show ‘Unbelievable’ and author of the new book, ‘The Surprising Rebirth of Belief in God: Why New Atheism Grew Old and Secular Thinkers Are Considering Christianity Again.’ In conjunction with the release of the book, Justin is here to share the details on his new documentary podcast of the same title, and how this project has reignited his hope for the survival of the Christian faith in secular society. During the episode, Frank and Justin will answer questions like:

Why did Justin end his time on ‘Unbelievable’?
What is the focus of Justin’s new podcast?
What contributed to the rise of New Atheism after 9/11?
Is Richard Dawkins a “Christian Atheist?”
Why did Christianity fuel the modern scientific revolution?
Who are the prominent voices leading the exodus of new atheism?

Justin and Frank will also touch on some of the splits within the new atheist movement and highlight the ways in which atheism maintains its own version of dogmatism and religiosity.
