John Lennox, an Oxford University Professor of Pure Mathematics and Philosophy of Science, will join us for a one-night-only event “Saving America’s Future.” John is arguably the greatest Christian apologist of our time and the closest thing to C.S. Lewis we have seen since, well, C.S. Lewis.
Many will remember his able defense of the Christian faith in the 2007 Fixed Point Foundation debate with atheist Richard Dawkins, the bestselling author of The God Delusion. Since then, he has successfully debated many other prominent “New Atheists” all over the world. Others will have heard him speaking on campuses from Harvard to UCLA or, perhaps, on radio with Ravi Zacharias.
But John Lennox is much more than that. In addition to being my friend and something of a mentor, he is, simply put, unlike any academic you will ever meet. A silver-tongued Irishman, Professor Lennox is a brilliant, utterly captivating communicator who has the unique ability to combine his formidable academic background–he possesses Ph.D.s from Oxford, Cambridge, and the University of Wales–with a profound theological depth, thus giving audiences a greater understanding of the world and the times we live in.
Since my nearly fatal accident almost a year ago, John has been planning to come and see me and my family in Birmingham. That is to say, his chief purpose in visiting is social, not professional. But I simply could not let John Lennox come to Birmingham and leave without sharing him with you. To that end, we have planned this special event. “Saving America’s Future” is not a political rally. It isn’t about immigration, Hillary, or Trump. It is about the next generation–our children, grandchildren, and those in our youth groups, who, according to the data, are leaving the church en masse.
A word of warning: Since we made this event public, it has filled rapidly even though we have only modestly promoted it. So much so, that we have had to change event spaces within the same venue. In the last two weeks, we have accepted over 400 reservations. We cannot accept many more. So, if you would like to attend, I suggest you reserve NOW.
