Terry Eagleton, former Wharton Professor of English literature at Oxford University, radical theorist, and one of our most important living literary critics, is no friend to institutionalised religion. But he is also deeply troubled by a new, militant strain of atheism propagated by intellectuals such as Richard Dawkins. Eagleton comes to London and the ICA to present a lecture criticising the assumptions of the "new atheism" and a revolutionary account of the Christian gospel which, he believes, will be of interest to believers and non-believers alike. Terry Eagleton is the author of Reason, Faith and Revolution: Reflections on the God Debate and Jesus Christ: The Gospels.
