Genexis: Ethics and Life After Death with George Ellis, NT Wright and Lee Strobel
Monday, September 30th
Genexis is a series of talks by world-leading scientists and academics presenting simple evidence for a creator God.
Join Professor George Ellis as he talks about Ethics - that human existence is governed and understood through concepts of morality and justice which are both beautiful and mysterious.
Join NT Wright and Lee Strobel as they present the compelling historical evidence for the seemingly implausible proposition that 2000 years ago a maverick preacher from Nazareth in Palestine died but then lived to tell the tale.
George Ellis is the Emeritus distinguished professor of complex systems in the Department of Mathematics and Applied Mathematics at the University of Cape Town in South Africa. He co-authored The Large Scale Structure of Space-Time with University of Cambridge physicist Stephen Hawking, published in 1973, and is considered one of the world's leading theorists in cosmology. He is an active Quaker and in 2004 he won the Templeton Prize. From 1989 to 1992 he served as president of the International Society on General Relativity and Gravitation. He is a past president of the International Society for Science and Religion. Prof Ellis is also Visiting Professor Physics Department, Oxford University 2016-2018 and visiting Professor of Complex Systems, Said School of Business, Oxford University 2019-2021. He is the author of several important books including "On the Moral Nature of the Universe: Cosmology, Theology and Ethics" (1996).
NT (Tom) Wright is a leading New Testament scholar and authority on the historical evidence for the resurrection. He was the Bishop of Durham (2003-2010) and is now Research Professor of New Testament and Early Christianity at St Mary’s College in the University of St Andrews. Tom is a prolific writer and author of over eighty works including 'The Resurrection of the Son of God' considered by many to be the seminal Christian work on the resurrection of Jesus. In 2014, he was awarded the Burkitt Medal by the British Academy 'in recognition of special service to Biblical Studies'. He is also a fellow of the Royal Society of Edinburgh (FRSE).
Lee Strobel was formerly a committed atheist. Lee Strobel qualified as a Bachelor of Journalism from the University of Missouri and gained a Masters in law from Yale. Lee was an investigative reporter for the Chicago Tribune for 14 years, winning United Press International’s top award for investigative journalism. He converted to Christianity after setting out to disprove the resurrection and thus persuade his wife to abandon her newly found faith in Christ. The result was the reverse. Lee’s story has been famously told in the book 'The Case for Christ' which was made into a popular film released in 2017. His recent release, 'The Case for Grace, won the 2016 Nonfiction Book of the Year from the EPCA. He will be joining us by video from Houston, Texas.
