Some commentators claim that science has finally killed the concept of God by virtue of its own all-encompassing explanations of reality. Atheism, they say, is the only intellectually tenable position, and any attempt to reintroduce God is likely to impede scientific progress. In this stimulating and thought-provoking book, with impeccable logic, irrefutable documentation, and extraordinary Christian grace, John Lennox invites us to reexamine such claims. Is it really true, he asks, that the nature of science points toward atheism? Could it be possible that theism sits more comfortably with science than atheism? Has science truly buried God or not? "Recent books touting atheism have been grounded more on dyspepsia than on dispassionate reason. In this book John Lennox considers the best, most recent science from physics and biology, and demonstrates that the picture looks far different from what we've been told." --Michael Behe Author, Darwin's Black Box

He also holds an MA and DPhil from Oxford University and an MA in Bioethics from the University of Surrey. He was a Senior Alexander Von Humboldt Fellow at the Universities of Wurzburg and Freiburg in Germany. He has lectured extensively in North America, Eastern and Western Europe and Australasia on mathematics, the philosophy of science and the intellectual defence of Christianity.
Between 2007 and 2011, Lennox was involved in numerous public debates in the UK, US, and Australia, wherein he articulated an intellectually robust Christian case for the existence of God. His interlocutors have included Richard Dawkins, the late Christopher Hitchens, and Peter Singer.
Lennox has written a number of books on the interface between science, philosophy and theology. These include God's Undertaker: Has Science Buried God? (2009), God and Stephen Hawking, a response to The Grand Design (2011), Gunning for God, on the new atheism (2011), and Seven Days that Divide the World, on the early chapters of Genesis (2011). Furthermore, in addition to over seventy published mathematical papers, he is the co-author of two research level texts in algebra in the Oxford Mathematical Monographs series.
