Derren Brown, the UK’s most famous illusionist and mentalist, was once a Christian. In the first of a two part special, he talks to Justin Brierley about why he lost his faith, and about his latest stage show Miracle in which he plays the persona of a healing evangelist.  Justin and Derren also discuss the resurrection of Jesus, atheism and finding meaning in life. Next week’s show sees them discuss in detail the content of the Miracle stage show.

Justin is joined for the final part of the show by station manager (and Derren Brown fanboy) Dave Rose, plus Jamie Cutteridge and Ruth Jackson of Premier Youthwork magazine to reflect on the interview.
