SummaryTrevor Hart on how to separate reality from fantasy when using the imagination to understand God
Trevor Hart is the Director of the Institute for Theology, Imagination and the Arts at the University of St Andrews in Scotland. He was in Sydney to deliver the annual New College Lectures, and was generously made available to CPX by New College.
