What Purpose Does Religion Serve?

Last year, Justin Brierly began hosting a new series related to the Unbelievable? podcast and radio show titled, “The Big Conversation”.

These long-form discussions are interesting for a number of reasons, including the participants, the subjects, and the discussion itself. A fairly recent one from last season is a discussion between atheist-turned-Anglican priest and scholar Alister McGrath and former professor of evolutionary biology-turned-podcaster Bret Weinstein on the utility of religion.

The discussion is respectful and interesting and worth listening to.
