Is God a Delusion? Watch the debate TODAY, and pray

An excerpt from an email I recently received:

"Until recently it's looked like Dawkins has done a runner when any challenge has arisen to debate one of his intellectual equals who is a biblical Christian. This Wednesday that changes. John Lennox, also a professor in Oxford, is someone many of us who've been around IFES or UCCF will know: a top-flight mathematician, expert on science and faith, and a first-rate speaker (and superb Bible expositor). They're debating in Birmingham, Alabama, THIS Wednesday 3 Oct at 7pm their time. As I understand a Federal Court Judge will be moderating, 1450 tickets have sold out (I see they're now being sold on eBay), the BBC and Wall St Journal are covering it; apparently it will be broadcast on Moody Radio and we can look forward to a DVD later. (More details on www.fixed-point.org.)

John's new book God's Undertaker: Has Science Buried God? (Lion Hudson) has just come out.
"

Watch the debate TODAY at 8pm EST (Toronto, East Coast) or 7pm CDT (Actual location: Alabama) or 1am GMT (England) at the following link:

Pray with me: Lord, we pray that this debate will glorify you. Give John Lennox strength, grace, wisdom, courage, poise, gentleness and peace. May you be glorified through this debate. Show more people that you haven't called us to blind faith; but, in fact, you have called us to study, think, explore, question, and learn. In Jesus' name. Amen.
