Summary

Francis Spufford on why doubt is an important companion to faith and why grace is so appealing.

Acclaimed British writer Francis Spufford surprised many when he ‘outed’ himself as a Christian with his book, Unapologetic: Why, Despite Everything, Christianity Can Still Make Surprising Emotional Sense. Rejecting the New Atheist insistence on rationality and proof for everything, Spufford makes a stirring defence of Christian emotions, claiming that they make a compelling case for the way faith can function in the 21st century.

Simon Smart caught up with him at the Adelaide Festival.
