Professor John Lennox films documentary with Hollywood actor Kevin Sorbo

John LennoxEmeritus Fellow Professor John Lennox has filmed a documentary about science and religion with Hollywood actor and director Kevin Sorbo.

The film, called Against the Tide: Finding God in an Age of Science, follows Professor Lennox and Sorbo as they take on a journey to discover how the Christian faith stands against atheism.

Some of the scenes were filmed at Green Templeton College and other Oxford landmarks including the iconic Eagle and Child pub on St Giles, just a stone’s throw from our main college campus.

Professor Lennox said: ‘Having been a Fellow of the College for more than 20 years it was a memorable privilege to be able to film part of Against the Tide in the outstanding aesthetic and intellectual environment of the College’s Radcliffe Observatory.’

Travelling from Oxford to Cambridge to Jerusalem, Professor Lennox and Sorbo engage in conversation about the intersection of science and Christianity. Along the way, Professor Lennox examines the consequences of an atheistic worldview, recounting his travels in Soviet Europe, and recalls his debates with prominent atheists such as Richard Dawkins and Christopher Hitchins.

The documentary, from Pensmore Films, is available now on DVD and BluRay.

In addition to being an Emeritus Fellow at Green Templeton, Professor Lennox is the college Pastoral Adviser. He is Professor of Mathematics (Emeritus) at the University of Oxford and an Associate Fellow of the Saïd Business School.

Professor Lennox has written a number of books on the interface between science, philosophy and theology including: Can Science Explain Everything? (2019); 2084: Artificial Intelligence and the Future of Humanity (2020); God and Stephen Hawking (10th anniversary ed 2021);  Cosmic Chemistry: Do God and Science Mix? (2021).
