Religious faith makes sense. This is the message Richard Dawkins's biggest critic will be presenting at a public lecture on faith and atheism in London on 12 November.

Alister McGrath, eminent author and Professor of Theology, Ministry and Education at King's College London will address 'The God Delusion? The Rationality of Faith' at the Drawbridge Lecture of the Christian Evidence Society.

In a wide-ranging presentation, McGrath will explore the reasonableness of the Christian faith and present the reasons why he believes the Christian faith is true.

"This lecture is a celebration of the Christian faith's ability to make sense of the world and human experience," says McGrath.  "I can't scientifically prove that Christianity is true,' he said, "but there are very good reasons for thinking that Christianity itself makes sense and that it makes sense of life.  I am responding to aggressive suggestions made by New Atheist writers, such as a Richard Dawkins, that religious faith is simply irrational," he added.

The Drawbridge Lecture takes place in Auditorium B5, Franklin Wilkins Building, King's College London, 150 Stamford Street, London SE1, next Thursday, 12 November from 6-7.30pm, including time for questions.
