News from our friend, author Eric Metaxas, founder of Socrates in the City:
I'm thrilled to announce that registration is now open for an unprecedented, international version of Socrates in the City. We're taking SITC to Oxford, England. In fact, there will be eight SITC events in one week. I’ll be interviewing a brilliant array of guests — from journalist Peter Hitchens to C.S. Lewis's own secretary Walter Hooper. Visit the Socrates in the City websitehttp://www.socratesinthecity.com/ for all the details.
We’ll hold the eight sessions from Monday through Thursday, July 20th - 23rd, at St. Aldate's Church right in the center of Oxford. For those of you who live in England, or who plan to visit Oxford this summer, please come and join us! Admission to the sessions is free — but be sure to register here so we can save you a seat.
If you can't be in England this summer, take heart! All of the Oxford events will be broadcast on NRB-TV next season and they'll also be posted online atsocratesinthecity.com!
More information about our speakers is below here. We hope to see you soon!

He currently writes for the Daily Mail on Sunday, where he is a columnist and occasional foreign correspondent, reporting most recently from Iran, North Korea, Burma, The Congo, and China. A former revolutionary, he attributes his return to faith largely to hisexperience of socialism in practice, which he witnessed during his many years reporting in Eastern Europe and his nearly three years as a resident correspondent in Moscow during the collapse of the Soviet Union. Hitchens, who is the brother of the late Christopher Hitchens, lives in Oxford with his wife, Eve. They have three children.
