Actor, comedian and author Russell Brand recently sat down with Anglican priest and professor of science and religion in the Faculty of Theology and Religion at the University of Oxford and professor of divinity at Gresham College Alister McGrath for a really interesting conversation about God and faith.
The discussion took place on Brand’s Under the Skin podcast, and if you’ve ever listened to Brand’s web series before, you know that he’s pretty open to a range of ideas. In the show, McGrath explains his own journey from atheism to committed Christianity.
Even Brand expressed his own concerns with atheism, saying at one point, “For me, without some sense of a deeper truth, for me there is only hedonism … only indulgence.”
