Christianity and the Tooth Fairy

Christianity and the Tooth Fairy: A UCLA Law Professor Questions an Oxford Mathematician on the Claims of Jesus

Children believe in the tooth fairy until their reasoning capabilities mature and they recognise this belief is neither grouynded nor relevant. Does belief in Jesus Christ require a suspension of logic? Can Christianity be proven to be true? UCLA Law professor Daniel Lowenstein interviews Oxford mathematician John Lennox with honest questions about Christianity and the grounds for faith.

This talk was held on 6 April 2011 in UCLA and was part of a tour in conjunction with The Veritas Forum.

  1. The foundation of Christian theology is expressed in the early ecumenical creeds which contain claims predominantly accepted by followers of the Christian faith. These professions state that Jesus suffered, died, was buried, and was subsequently resurrected from the dead in order to grant eternal life to those who believe in him and trust him for the remission of their sins.`


  2. Thank you very, very much Dr. Lennox. This lecture has been very helpful, and I must thank you for being an inspiration. I deeply appreciate the fact that you ended the lecture on the Cross. To know that there are men like you who are so brilliant intellectually, and yet you hold God’s love for you in such a high and wonderful place, that is such a great encouragement to myself. I intend to go into the higher sciences, and you have been a great encouragement to me.
