Q & A PANELISTS:

DR. ANDY BANNISTER is a popular author, speaker and broadcaster. He speaks and teaches regularly throughout Canada, the USA, Europe, and the wider world, addressing audiences of all faiths and none on issues of philosophy, belief, and scepticism. Andy holds a doctorate in Islamic studies from Brunel University, London and is a guest lecturer at Wycliffe Hall, University of Oxford.

Recently, Dr. Andy Bannister released the book: The Atheist Who Didn't Exist: Or the Dreadful Consequences of Bad Arguments (Oxford: Lion). In this book he looks at common atheist soundbites that at first glance sound like quite powerful, but upon deeper examination begin to unravel. He uses humour, wit, good illustrations, logic, and reason to get to the bottom of things.

He enjoys mountaineering, juggling, and cats (although not simultaneously). He tweets frequently at @andygbannister.

NICK HILL has been a campus staff member with Power to Change at the University of Toronto for the last six years.

Nick organizes many large and small events at U of T for the purpose of clearing away misunderstandings and roadblocks that keep students and professors from engaging with Jesus Christ. Some of these events have included: “Is it True? Getting to the Heart of the World’s Religions”, “Why? Exploring Life’s Key Questions?”, “Bad Arguments Against True Religion”, “God and Reason: A Christian Perspective”, and “Has Science Made God Irrelevant?”

Nick received a BA in Christianity and Culture from Trinity Western University. He has done graduate work in theology at Gordon-Conwell Theological Seminary and summer studies at Yale Divinity School.

When not engaged in dialoguing with others about the deeper issues of life, Nick enjoys rock climbing, hiking, and getting out on the water. He lives in Toronto and is married to Jen and they have four children: Grace, Iain, Jacob, and Kate.
