Keith Ward is known for giving remarkable lectures without referring to a written text. Rather than transcribe the lecture on "The New Atheists" recorded at the Cathedral, he preferred to develop a new text based on the lecture instead. The theme and thread of the arguments are the same, but the wording varies from the live lecture.
Professor Ward dismantles the arguments put forward by a number of famous atheists, including Richard Dawkins. At the same time, he sets out a mesmerising vision of the universe as it is unfolding under the scrutiny of today's quantum physicists - concluding that belief in God is the most rational position.
His new text has been reproduced faithfully as a pdf and made available for free download from the Cathedral website's Education section: Podcasts and texts.
On the same page, you can also listen to a recording of the lecture, provided in mp3 format.
For those who prefer to purchase a professionally published booklet, this will shortly be available from the Cathedral later for $5.00 plus postage.
