Dr Allan Chapman is an Oxford historian, fellow of the Royal Astronomical Society and a Christian believer. His new book ‘Comets, Cosmology and the Big Bang: From Halley to Hubble’ traces 400 colourful years of astronomical advance and the faith of those involved.

Friend and colleague Lord Martin Rees, the Astronomer Royal, joins the conversation to talk about his recent book ‘On The Future’ and why as an agnostic he doesn’t see God as the explanation for the mystery of the Universe, even though many before him have.

At the end of the show Justin chats to Frank Viola about his new book ‘Insurgence: Reclaiming the gospel of the Kingdom’
