The ”Hitchens” debates
Christopher Hitchens is undoubtably the best known atheist, leader of the “Four Horseman” in promoting atheism, and attacking religion, more specifically Christianity. Is he right? Does he have good arguments? This video series will let you make up your own mind, as Hitchens will debate three Christian apologists. Whatever the outcome,“Hitch” is in any case an entertaining force of nature no matter the subject matter or venue! Hitchens was born British, became an American citizen in 1981, and is widely known as an author and journalist, contributing to Vanity Fair, the Atlantic, and many other periodicals.

Dr. John Lennox holds PhD’s in Mathematics and Philosophy, and speaks 8 languages. On a trip to the USSR for a Math conference, his hosts found out he was Christian, and began to ask him a lot of questions, since they had never met one. Thus began Dr. Lennox’s career as an apologist, as from then on, he was more in demand for his Christian philosophical views than his appointed career of mathematics! He is a prof at
Oxford, but travels the world giving lectures and speaking.
