Interview: Life in the shadow of death – Finding hope in a pandemic

John Lennox and I explore the cost of living through coronavirus

This year many of us have come face-to-face with the inevitability of death in a new and frightening way. As Covid-19 has swept across our world and through every aspect of our lives, many of us have been left searching for understanding and questioning where we can find real hope.

I recently sat down to discuss this with my friend Professor John Lennox, a professor of mathematics at the University of Oxford and an internationally-renowned speaker and author on the interface between science, philosophy and religion. This was broadcast as part of the Pillar & Step programme at All Souls Church in central London and you watch our conversation below.
