John Lennox, author of the best-selling book God’s Undertaker: Has Science Buried God? and fellow in mathematics and philosophy of science at Oxford University’s Green Templeton College, is referenced in a pivotal scene in God’s Not Dead, releasing Aug. 5 on DVD from Pure Flix.
Lennox, a frequent guest of Ravi Zacharias, Discovery Institute and The Veritas Forum, engages audiences worldwide to share the message that the word “faith” has been misconstrued to mean “blind faith” rather than “evidence-based faith.”
Lennox’s arguments have now been brought to the attention of a much larger audience in God’s Not Dead, which tells the stories of a college student’s battle with his atheistic philosophy professor.
“It was good to see that the makers of the God’s Not Dead movie thought the arguments contained in my books were important enough to feature in the film,” Lennox said. “It is gratifying to learn that many viewers found these scenes both credible and convincing.”
Lennox’s travels often bring him to the United States, including a recent tour with The Veritas Forum and the opening plenary talk at the 2014 Faith and Science Conference: Genesis and Genetics in Springfield, Missouri.
Lennox’s next book, Against the Flow, is scheduled for March 2015 release under Lion Hudson’s Monarch imprint. Written to encourage Christians, it will explore the book of Daniel and will mix commentary, history and apologetics.
