Nice Italian Boy Teaches Philosophy at Oxford

Vince Vitale is

Senior Tutor at the Oxford Centre for Christian Apologetics, Tutor in Philosophy and Mission at Wycliffe Hall, a member of the Faculty of Theology and Religion at the University of Oxford, and a speaker for RZIM Europe.  He holds a D.Phil. in Philosophy and an M.Phil. in Theology, both from the University of Oxford. His primary research interests are in philosophy of religion, epistemology, and ethics. Vince is erstwhile Secretary of the Joseph Butler Society for the Philosophy of Religion and previously taught with rank of Lecturer in the Philosophy and Religion Departments of his alma mater, Princeton University, where he committed his life to Jesus Christ as an undergraduate and later served as Director of Athletes in Action Christian Fellowship. Vince has a passion for the intersection of faith and sport. He played varsity soccer at Princeton, has been awarded Blues in football and boxing at Oxford, and has traveled with Athletes in Action soccer teams to four continents. Vince and his wife Jo met at St. Aldate’s Church, Oxford.

This according to his profile at Ravi Zacharias International ministries.

In this brief video, Vince makes the case that God is not only not dead; he’s alive and well in … the philosophy departments of institutions like Oxford.

Enjoy and be edified:

  1. I just finished reading http://www.amazon.com/Did-Resurrection-Happen-Conversation-Habermas/dp/0830837183/ and the biggest thing I got out of it was that theism has very little to do with Christianity. In fact, Flew’s conversion to Deism was not compelling at all. He was simply being more honest.

    Of course atheism has no argument. Atheism, as Chris Rosebrough is apt to remind us, is nothing more than intellectual dishonesty (straight from the Bible). And yet theism itself has absolutely nothing to say about Christianity.
    So while I certainly welcome the strength of the theistic argument, there is always much that is wanting anytime the Gospel is not also present. (and Vince Vitale basically says as much with his Nietzsche quote)

    • Agreed — but I view this video as a teaser. Given that Vitale is also on the staff of RZIM, I doubt the Gospel is missing from their apologetic in its entirety.
