Os Guinness is an author, cultural critic and Christian apologist. He co-founded the Trinity Forum which “seeks to transform society through the transformation of leaders”. Baroness Mary Warnock is a moral philosopher and atheist. She is a cross bench peer in the House of Lords and an influential voice arguing for liberalisation of euthanasia laws. Her book “Dishonest to God” argues that religious and theological issues should have no place in issues of public morality, covering euthanasia, assisted suicide, and abortion.

At the time of recording Os Guinness was due to speak at the House of Lords on how Christian religious freedoms should be treated in a pluralistic society as set out in his new book “The Case for Civility”. They discuss how we judge what is moral, euthanasia, gay adoption and more. The show was recorded in the robing chamber in the House of Lords.
