Description

Can science explain everything?

Many people think so. Science, and the technologies it has spawned, has delivered so much to the world: clean water; more food; better healthcare; longer life. And we live in a time of rapid scientific progress that holds enormous promise for many of the problems we face as humankind. So much so, in fact, that many see no need or use for religion and belief systems that offer us answers to the mysteries of our universe. Science has explained it, they assume. Science and religion just do not mix.

Oxford Maths Professor and Christian believer Prof. John Lennox offers a fresh way of thinking about science and Christianity that dispels the common misconceptions about both. He reveals that not only are they not opposed, but they can and must mix to give us a fuller understanding of the universe and the meaning of our existence.

Commendations

I am delighted that my colleague and friend John Lennox has invested time to offer a wonderfully readable summary of his work in science. Here he offers each of us what his parents gave him as a young lad growing up in Northern Ireland: the welcomed space to think for ourselves and the tools to dig deeper into questions of science and faith. I have learned so much from Professor Lennox over the years as I’ve watched him interact with critics and skeptics with grace and boldness. I believe you will find this book immensely helpful and enjoyable.

With the delightfulness and wit of an Irishman, and the airtight logic of his mathematical mind, Lennox graciously whittles away at long-held controversies between science and God or science and the Bible.  Using his remarkably rational thought process, Lennox gently dissects materialism and the arguments of its proponents in this delightful easy-to-read treatise. The presuppositions of science are left pondering in the face of this battle-hardened sage who is a stalwart follower of Jesus Christ.

I picked up a book to read about science and was given a thorough presentation of the gospel instead.   That is not to say that John Lennox did not provide a very thorough discussion of science.  He did.  Very effectively.  His true gift is in his ability to craft a story that was both inspired language with gifted writing to present two seemingly contradictory ideas in a very logical, methodical, yet palatable writing style.  Both Christian and non-Christian, scientist and non-scientist, and everyone in between, would benefit tremendously from reading this book.
