Professor John C. Lennox, author of Cosmic Chemistry, explores evidence for a Creator at Genexis 2021

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. John will ask whether other plausible explanations exist and explain why his personal conclusion is that the evidence points to 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.

What others are saying about Cosmic Chemistry:

“The scholarship is fine-grained, integrating dozens of fields. Best of all is the tour de force of new developments in evolutionary biology that have largely gone unreported, backed by a rich historical context running back to the ancient Greeks.” 

Perry Marshall, author of Evolution 2.0, founder of the $10 million Evolution 2.0 Prize

“In this accessible and engaging introduction, John Lennox guides us through the great debates about science and faith, and offers incisive assessments of the issues.” 

Alister McGrath, Professor of Science and Religion, University of Oxford

“In a century when all the fields of science and technology converge in biology, the effort to confront the deeper meaning of life from a historical and philosophical perspective is more relevant than ever before. This book is a timely and excellent contribution to the conversation.” 

Sonia Contera, Professor of Biological Physics, University of Oxford
