John Lennox Premier Lecture – Going Against the Flow

Professor John Lennox and the life and book of Daniel

This is an outstanding and challenging lecture by Professor John Lennox from Oxford University.  We highly recommend this lecture and Prof. Lennox’s book, both of which are highly relevant to Christians living in a post-Christian western world.  From the Premier website:

Mathematician and Christian thinker John Lennox gave the Premier Lecture for the 20th Anniversary of the Radio station on June 10th.

Drawing on his new book ‘Against the Flow’, Lennox draws lessons from the book of Daniel for the church today.

The Concept of God in Islam and Christianity by William Lane Craig

This is one of the best Islam-Christianity short talks we have ever heard, in which two different concepts of God are compared and contrasted.

Dr. William Lane Craig clearly shows how the God of Islam is morally deficient, while by contrast the God of the Bible is morally perfect. This perfection is brought into focus in particular within the trinity.

This last point about the trinity is especially interesting because Muslims are often quick to attack the trinity, while Christians are often reluctant to defend the trinity before Muslims. Dr. Craig shows that, in fact, the trinity is a great asset to Christianity as a cohesive and coherent set of beliefs.

Eric Metaxas and Socrates in the City present an evening with John Lennox, Professor of Mathematics at Oxford University, at the Union Club in New York City on January 31, 2013. Dr. Lennox explores a method for reading and interpreting the first chapters of Genesis without discounting either science or Scripture. Afterward Metaxas is heard asking, “Why didn’t I ever have any math teachers like this?”

Prof. John Lennox

I think they mean “God”, not “god” but hey, Lennox only beat up Dawkins twice.  Congrats to Mark Cubey and Kim Hill for having Professor Lennox on their show.
