Do you feel riddled with questions about faith? Answering the tough problems of freedom and faith, this book is a thorough deep-dive into doubt. You'll become assured and confident when discussing determinism. 'Determined to Believe' is written for those who are interested in or even troubled by questions about God's sovereignty and human freedom and responsibility.

John Lennox writes in the spirit of helping people to get to grips with the biblical treatment of this issue for themselves. In this comprehensive review of the topic of theological determinism, Lennox seeks firstly to define the problem, looking at the concepts of freedom, the different kinds of determinism, and the moral problems these pose. He then equips the reader with biblical teaching on the topic and explores the spectrum of theological opinion on it.

Following this Lennox delves deeper into the Gospels and then investigates what we can learn regarding determinism and responsibility from Paul's discussion in Romans on God's dealings with Israel. Finally Lennox tackles the issue of Christian assurance.

This nuanced and detailed study challenges some of the widely held assumptions in the area of theological determinism and brings a fresh perspective to the debate.

John Lennox is Professor of Mathematics at the University of Oxford and Fellow in Mathematics and Philosophy of Science at Green Templeton College. He lectures on 'Faith and Science' for the Oxford Centre for Christian Apologetics. He has lectured in many universities around the world, including Austria and the former Soviet Union. He is particularly interested in the interface of Science, Philosophy and Theology.

Lennox has been part of numerous public debates defending the Christian faith. 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). John is the author of a number of books on the relations of science, religion and ethics. He and his wife Sally live near Oxford.
