Known as the ‘four horsemen’ of New Atheism, these four thinkers of the twenty-first century met only once. Their electrifying examination of ideas on this remarkable occasion was intense and wide-ranging. Questions they asked of each other included:
Is it ever possible to win a war of ideas?
Is spirituality the preserve of the religious?
Is it acceptable to criticize someone's belief?
Can you argue someone out of their faith?
Can you reform a religion to make it acceptable?
The dialogue was recorded, and is now transcribed and presented here with new introductions from the surviving three horsemen.
Essential reading for anyone interested in exploring the tensions between faith and reason.
"One to watch: electrifying"

We asked Britain's most famous vicar to review Richard Dawkins' new book on atheism. Now the author has written a response. Together they make a fascinating debate about religion and the nature of belief.
