Does Science Point to God?
John Lennox completes his lecture series at King's
NEW YORK, September 17th, 2012–On Friday, September 14th, Dr. John Lennox completed his lectures series at The King’s College as part of the Presidential Scholars Program. Over the course of five days, Dr. Lennox delivered five lectures and discussed the intersection of science and faith with President Dinesh D’Souza and the faculty of the College.
While at King’s, Dr. Lennox focused on exploring the question “Does Science Point to God?” In an age of scientific skepticism, many assume that science and faith are epistemological enemies. Dr. Lennox is no stranger to this modern skepticism toward faith. In one lecture, he said that working with skeptical colleagues at Oxford is a “fairly daunting experience,” but that “if it’s true, than you can’t keep it to yourself.”
One of the great Christian apologists of the 21st century, John Lennox debates with a razor-sharp wit and whimsical style. He also carries a long list of academic qualifications. Dr. Lennox is Professor of Mathematics in the University of Oxford, Fellow in Mathematics and the Philosophy of Science, and Pastoral Advisor at Green Templeton College, Oxford. He is also an adjunct Lecturer at Wycliffe Hall, Oxford University and at the Oxford Centre for Christian Apologetics and is a Senior Fellow of the Trinity Forum. In addition, he teaches for the Oxford Strategic Leadership Programme at the Executive Education Centre, Said Business School, Oxford University.
