A number of us have been praying for two years to have Dr. John Lennox come to the University of Toronto. He accepted our invitation and will be in Toronto from March 14-16, 2015. This is indeed an answer to prayer as Dr. Lennox receives countless speaking requests a month. John Lennox is Professor of Mathematics at the University of Oxford. He received his D.Phil. from Oxford, a Ph.D. from Cambridge, and a D.Sc. from Cardiff. He is famous for debating atheist Richard Dawkins on “The God Delusion” at the University of Alabama (2007) and on “Has Science buried God?” at the Oxford Museum of Natural History (2008). He has also debated Christopher Hitchens on the New Atheism (Edinburgh Festival, 2008) and the question of “Is God Great?” (Samford University, 2010). He has written a number of books on the interface between science, philosophy and theology. These include God’s Undertaker: Has Science Buried God? (2009), God and Stephen Hawking, a response to The Grand Design (2011), Gunning for God, on the new atheism (2011), and Seven Days that Divide the World, on the early chapters of Genesis (2011). Furthermore, in addition to over seventy published mathematical papers, he is the co-author of two research level texts in algebra in the Oxford Mathematical Monographs series.
Here are some of his debates and talks below:
