‘God on Trial’ is Topic of Upcoming Debate

      St. Louis to Host Controversial Debate between National Experts

    BIRMINGHAM, Ala., Aug. 11 /EMWNews/ -- The existence of God and the

role of religion in modern society take center stage as two well-known

authors and religious commentators go head to head on the topic, "God on

Trial." The debate is being sponsored by Fixed Point Foundation, a

non-profit Christian think tank based in Birmingham, Ala.

    The "God on Trial" debate takes place on Wednesday, Sept. 10, 2008 at

Powell Symphony Hall in St. Louis. The debate pits Christopher Hitchens,

the author of God is Not Great: How Religion Poisons Everything, against

Dinesh D'Souza, the author of What's So Great About Christianity, a book

discussing the significance and uniqueness of the Christian faith. More

information can be found at

    Hitchens is a British-American author, journalist, and literary critic.

In addition to his various books, he has been a columnist for several

prominent publications, including Vanity Fair and The Nation. D'Souza is a

New York Times bestselling author and a former policy analyst in the Reagan

White House and several high-level fellowships at the American Enterprise

Institute and the Robert and the Hoover Institution at Stanford University.

    "This kind of debate and dialogue is very important -- and useful --

for people of all faiths," says Larry Taunton, Founder and Executive

Director of the Fixed Point Foundation. "The decisions we make regarding

the question of God's existence or non-existence has vast implications both

for the individual and for society as a whole, so we do everything we can

to encourage thoughtful consideration of these issues."

    Fixed Point Foundation held its first debate of this kind last year in

Birmingham, Ala. Titled "The God Delusion Debate," the event featured Dr.

John Lennox and Professor Richard Dawkins.

    "God on Trial" is open to the public. Tickets start at $25 and can be
