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. Religion is redundant.

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

John Lennox’s new book gives a thought-provoking, engaging, and wide-ranging discussion of the relationship between Science and Christianity. He looks at writings and sayings of prominent scientists, from Newton to Hawking, about religion, the universe, God and creation, and discusses the role of faith and rational argument in both religion and science. I highly recommend the book as an engaging and challenging read.

Written with expected clarity, we have here an overview of the relationship between science and Christianity and how well they fit together; but more than that, this little book is also a window into what it is for a fine mind to live in relationship with God.

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.
