God's Undertaker by John Lennox

I've already had some good feedback on the Old Testament series we started on Sunday, and in particular on the short clip I showed of John Lennox, a Maths professor from Oxford University, speaking on the limitations of science.

I thought you might be interested to know that John Lennox has written a book, "God's Undertaker: Has Science Buried God", which examines this in much more detail. It's mostly very readable - he has a real ability to tell stories and explain things using simple analogies, as in the story of the cake he tells in the clip. If this sort of things interests you then you might also want to consider hanging out with my good friends John Mitchell and Jonathan Davis. They spend a lot of time in this world of apologetics, travelling to hear people like John Lennox speak on this and other subjects. If you don't know who they are grab me on a Sunday and I'll introduce you to them!

Please remember to read your Bible this week. It takes about 40 days for us to establish a habit, so it may take a while for you to get into a routine, but please persevere as there are such riches to be found as we dig into God's word. Why not look again at Genesis 1 and 2 from Sunday, and then look ahead to Genesis 3 which we'll be digging in to next Sunday.

Simon.

I read that book by John Lennox 18 months ago and found it incredibly helpful. I'd recommend it to anyone.
