Rupert Shortt

Rupert Shortt is religion editor of The Times Literary Supplement and a former Visiting Fellow at Oxford University.

His books include Benedict XVI (2005), Christianophobia: A Faith Under Attack (2012) and Rowan’s Rule: The Biography of the Archbishop (2014).
His latest publication, God Is No Thing; Coherent Christianity, doubles up as a reply to the New Atheists and a defence of Christian belief.

He sets out to demonstrate in a hundred pages how you can be philosophically and scientifically literate, and still believe the creed with confidence.
