“There is no need at all to be ashamed of the Gospel of Christ, of the Good News, because it fits with science and there are answers”
Justin Brierley meets Oxford maths professor and Christian apologist John Lennox
The Times newspaper recently labelled John Lennox as “Christianity’s new poster boy”. It’s a description Lennox greets with his infectious Irish chuckle, readily admitting he doesn’t exactly have the physique of a male pin-up.
How then, did the Oxford mathematician and philosopher of science earn the label? Because he fought Dawkins and won (according to many, at least). John Lennox isn’t just a good academic; he’s also an excellent communicator. Affable, fluent and with a smile in his eyes, he draws the listener in, an evangelist for both science and Christianity.
