Is Faith Delusional?

Last night, I had the priviledge of listening to Ravi Zacharias and John Lennox at the Atlanta Civic Center. I was literally on the edge of my seat the entire time.

As a 'life student' of religion and philosophy (doesn't that sound pretentious?), I was very intrigued by what these gentlemen had to say. I went in with no knowledge of who they are and what their messages were going to be. In fact, I didn't even know they were both Christians before I entered the auditorium. The title of the lecture 'Is Faith Delusional?' just piqued my interest.

All that to say, I highly recommend you listen to these fellows if you get a chance. I don't care if you are an atheist, agnostic, Christian, buddhist, etc. I don't talk about religion on this blog for a very good reason, but I believe that anyone who can stimulate additional thought in my head is worth mentioning. And both of these men did just that.

Thanks for the links.

I've read a few books by Ravi Zacharias, but don't know of John Lennox...yet :)

I have heard a lot about Ravi Zacharias and would have loved to have gone if I had known about Kari, I have not heard of John Lennox but will look into his literature.

I haven't heard of either one of these guys... Maybe I'm living under a literary rock?!

Thanks for the heads up - I'll definitely look into both of them!
