Abstract

John Lennox is a professor emeritus in mathematics from the University of Oxford in England, lecturer emeritus in mathematics and the philosophy of science at Green Templeton College and a lecturer at The Oxford Center for Christian Apologetics. In his academic career, Lennox actively defended the Christian faith in public debates against well-known atheists such as Richard Dawkins, Christopher Hitchens, and Peter Singer. The writings in this book were born from Lennox's reflection on the situation of anxiety and confusion that is currently sweeping the world due to the Coronavirus pandemic. For this reason, Lennox invites his readers to have a dialogue with him in a cafe over a cup of coffee and asks: "Where is God in the midst of a world ravaged by the Coronavirus?" Although written in a relatively short time and with a number of pages that are not many, this book provides sufficient theological, historical, and scientific insight into the current pandemic. Not only that, Lennox also tries to be sensitive to the suffering that is being faced by his readers by telling his personal and family experiences when facing illness.
