Very true. Alistair McGrath's beliefs do seem to be vague, ambiguous, and vacuous. He talks like he is a deist or pantheistic and then moves on to a sort of pseudo Christianity. Then asserts that he relates to Christianity because , WAIT FOR IT "IT MAKES SENSE TO HIM". This is their great intellectual, their great theologian. It makes sense to him. Seriously?

Who wants to put 5 quid on McGrath mentioning C.S. Lewis in the debate with Hitchens. He has done it in the 4-5 debates I have seen him in.
