At least two in every three Australians believe in God or a “higher power” but fewer than one in 10 go to church every week. Yet religion is still growing around the world and, even in the materialistic West, the vast majority identify as spiritual, if not religious. Why do we insist on looking for a meaning to life, a sense of something beyond ourselves?

Researcher and social commentator Hugh Mackay, who asks these and other questions in his new book, Beyond Belief, ventures on some answers in a public conversation with Anglican Archbishop of Melbourne Philip Freier, moderated by ABC Radio’s John Cleary.
