Grand Canyon University welcomes John Lennox, PhD, to campus for his presentation, “Against the Flow,” which will be a discussion about Christian engagement in the public square based on his latest book by the same title. A question and answer session will follow Dr. Lennox’s presentation.
Dr. Lennox’s insightful analysis of current cultural issues draws on Daniel’s story from the Old Testament book that bears his name. Daniel’s story is one of extraordinary faith in God, lived out within a context that was resistant to Daniel’s God and his faith. In spite of persecution, Daniel and his friends remained faithful to God and deeply involved in the larger cultural dialogue throughout their lives.
The story of Daniel and his friends provides invaluable insight for God’s people in our day and a helpful example of faithfulness within a society that is increasingly hostile cultural environment. Join us as Dr. Lennox discusses major challenges facing Christians in today’s society and key insights from God’s Word about how to engage the world around us.
This event is open to the students, faculty, staff and the general public. Dr. Lennox will speak from 2 – 3 pm on Monday, Feb. 22 in the GCU Arena. The event is part of GCU’s Faith, Learning and Work Integration Speaker Series.

About College of Theology
Living Faith is a Christian blog that interacts with a variety of biblical, theological and practical topics written by Grand Canyon University's College of Theology faculty and specially invited guests of the college. Our content provides practical and biblical advice from a Christian worldview for living our faith in the midst of an increasingly secularized world. In addition, our content wrestles with cultural topics and issues that challenge how we live out our faith as believers. For this reason, contributors to our Christian blog strive to write with compassion and apologetic concern to honor Christ and edify the church in every way possible.
