Christians rejoice when they hear an atheist has come to faith. But they often don't know the path that brought them there. Ed Stetzer talks with Dr. Alister McGrath about the perceptions atheists have of Christianity and the circumstances that can lead these skeptics to reconsider faith in Jesus.
Dr. Alister McGrath is a former atheist who studied natural sciences at Oxford before switching to theology. He served as the Andreas Idreos Professor of Science and Religion at Oxford University from 2014 to 2022. Alister is the author of the international bestseller The Dawkins Delusion? Atheist Fundamentalism and the Denial of the Divine. He's also co-written "Coming to Faith through Dawkins: 12 Essays on the Pathway from New Atheism to Christianity".
