Some Recently Completed Projects

An eight episode version of a long-running debate I had with American atheist Carl Stecher, edited by Carl in 2002, is now published in full here at - with thanks to both Carl and bethinking editor Chris Knight.

Also now completed, the 2010 Reasonable Faith? course at Highfield Church Southampton. Our website contains audio recordings of (most of) the talks here.
