Mary Ward Lecture, Prof. John Cottingham, How to Believe
May 24, 2019 @ 4:00 pm - 5:30 pm
We are delighted to welcome Prof. John Cottingham to deliver the Mary Ward Lecture ‘How to Believe’.
Venue: Runcie Room, Faculty of Divinity, West Road, Cambridge.
Many people are deeply interested in the spiritual aspects of human existence but hold back from religious commitment because of doubts about the evidence for God. The lecture will chart a rational pathway towards religious belief by showing how it requires all the responses of the human mind. Intellectual analysis has its place, but to grasp all the relevant evidence we also need emotional openness and imaginative sensitivity.
