On Fri 22 July 2011 tragedy struck Norway as Anders Breivik detonated a bomb in Oslo and shot dozens of people on the island of Utoya.

Soon afterwards news media were referring to Breivik as a “Christian fundamentalist” But was he a Christian and did faith influence the terrible actions he took?

Peter Harris is a historian and Christian apologist. Ed Turner is a solicitor and atheist blogger. They discuss what Breivik appeared to believe and whether religion leads people to do evil things.
