John Lennox at The Oxford Union’s God debate

Many of you will know of John Lennox, Professor of Mathematics at Oxford University. He is interested in and writes a lot about the interface of science, philosophy and religion, and has debated noted atheists such as Richard Dawkins and the late Christopher Hitchins. Recently he was one of the speakers at the Oxford Union debate ‘This house believes in God’. He is a fabulous speaker and this is definitely worth watching as it’s only short. He makes a strong rational case for God, but what I thought was particularly powerful is how he shows that ultimately believing in God is about knowing a person and restoring a broken relationship – it’s quite remarkable.

  1. Thanks so much for posting this! I’ve shared it on Facebook. John Lennox is fascinating – I’m currently reading his book, ‘God’s Undertaker’, and I love the way it takes the classic arguments a fair few steps further with examples from actual scientific discourse.
