John Humphrys in search of God
John Humphrys as you’ve never heard him before – talking with religious leaders about his unfulfilled desire to believe in God.
How is faith possible in a world of suffering, much of it arguably caused by religion or religious extremism and to which God seems to turn a blind eye? Is there a place for religion in an age dominated by science?
John Humphrys talking to rather than interviewing Archbishop Rowan Williams is worth listening to. In the piece Williams accepts that, “Religion and geo-politics always mix in a rather explosive way”. Following this understatement he presents the idea that the worst murderers in history were not believers should be seen as support for Christianity. Ah! The old Stalin defence!
