For the first time, Bishop Robert Barron and Alex O’Connor (Cosmic Skeptic), two of the most respected voices in the world of YouTube atheism and Christianity, are brought together to debate each others worldview. 


They discuss why their YouTube channels have become so popular as people search for meaning and answers. They debate the philosophical evidence for God, whether faith is opposed to reason and the question of evil and suffering in the wake of Covid-19.
