Dr. Alister McGrath served as Andreas Idreos Professor of Science and Religion at Oxford University until he retired late in 2022. He is an international authority on C. S. Lewis, and published an award-winning biography on Lewis in 2013 to mark the 50th anniversary of his death. A former atheist, Dr. McGrath is especially interested in explaining Christianity to those outside the church. He is the author of some of the world’s best-selling theology textbooks, including Christian Theology: An Introduction, now in its sixth edition. His most recent book, published in August 2023 and edited with Professor Denis Alexander, is Coming to Faith through Dawkins: 12 Essays on the Pathway from New Atheism to Christianity. This is a remarkable collection of testimonies of people who came to faith as a result of reading Richard Dawkins’s book The God Delusion.
