I’ve been lucky enough to spend a few days travelling around the UK with Candle Conferences, where I have been talking about the Problem of Evil, and Dr Peter Vardy has talked about arguments for God, religious experience, and more. We have also been debating issues around euthanasia with the audiences, full of engaged and interested young people.

At one of these, I took a few minutes to ask Peter: why, in the competitive, employability driven world of education, should someone consider studying philosophy, ethics, or religious studies?
