27 September 2021
Professor John Lenox will speak tonight at Genexis 2021 in London. Genexis 2021 is a series of three evenings exploring evidence for a Creator. Each evening combines presentations from renowned experts on why theism is a rational worldview supported by science, philosophy and history. Professor John Lennox will be speak on Maths.
Specifically, Professor Lennox will explain how an ordered and intelligible universe that operates according to determinable fixed rules supports a belief in a creator God.

Do God and Science Mix?
Professor John C. Lennox
Is the rigorous pursuit of scientific knowledge really compatible with a sincere faith in God?
Building on the arguments put forward in God’s Undertaker: Has Science Buried God?, Prof John Lennox examines afresh the plausibility of a Christian theistic worldview in the light of some of the latest developments in scientific understanding. Prof Lennox focuses on the areas of evolutionary theory, the origins of life and the universe, and the concepts of mind and consciousness to provide a detailed and compelling introduction to the science and religion debate. He also offers his own reasoning as to why he continues to be convinced by a Christian approach to explaining these phenomena.
Robust in its reasoning, but respectful in tone, this book is vital reading for anyone exploring the relationship between science and God.
