This Friday, we will be heading down to Orange County to attend a live recorded broadcast of “The Big Conversation: Is God Dead?”, a conversation/debate on faith, culture, and the modern world.
The conversation/debate will be between the UK’s world renowned author, speaker, apologist, John Lennox, and popular American political commentator, Dave Rubin, host of The Rubin Report.
The cost is $15 to the public, but TD’ers get in FREE! You just need to RSVP with a TD leader by Wednesday!
Here’s some info on the debaters:
John Lennox, Professor of Mathematics at Oxford University, is an internationally renowned speaker on the interface of science, philosophy and religion. He regularly teaches at many academic institutions, is Senior Fellow with the Trinity Forum and has written a series of books exploring the relationship between science and Christianity.
He debated Richard Dawkins on “The God Delusion” in the University of Alabama (2007) and on “Has Science buried God?” in the Oxford Museum of Natural History (2008). He has also debated Christopher Hitchens on the New Atheism (Edinburgh Festival, 2008) and the question of “Is God Great?” (Samford University, 2010), as well as Peter Singer on the topic of “Is there a God?” (Melbourne, 2011). Furthermore, he has participated in public discussions on similar topics with many other academics on campuses around the world.
Lennox is also a member of the Ravi Zacharias International Ministries (RZIM) global speaking team.
Dave Rubin is a “free thinking classical liberal” who has had quite a journey. As a gay married man living in America, Dave spent the majority of his adult life subscribing to a certain political belief system based primarily on his immutable characteristics. Fed up with the mainstream media narrative and click-bait news, Dave decided to open up about his awakening, for all to see. He came to realize that no person or idea should be expected to join a side, but rather they should embrace their status as an individual. He now feels that the modern left has lost its way by taking political correctness and groupthink to a dangerous level, distracting from the true American dream of the pursuit of life, liberty and happiness.
The Rubin Report is one of the world’s most popular talk shows on free speech and big ideas. His YouTube channel and podcast have over 1 million subscribers each.
