Franklin, TN (September 11, 2020)
Against the Tide is coming to the big screen for an exclusive one-night nationwide theatrical event on November 19. Presented by Pensmore Films and Fathom Events, this compelling documentary follows University of Oxford mathematician and philosopher Professor John Lennox and veteran Hollywood actor and director Kevin Sorbo (Hercules, God’s Not Dead, Supergirl) as they explore the powerful evidence of the harmony between science and Christianity.
“Now, more than ever, there are many powerful voices portraying science and Christianity as fundamentally incompatible,” states Executive Producer Steven Huff. “Dr. Lennox is one of today’s leading academic voices dispelling this false choice and standing strong against the tide of misinformation and confusion.”
The documentary shares Lennox’s life-long passion to present evidence that science and history not only align with scripture, but actively support the biblical narrative. An internationally renowned speaker and author on the interface of science, philosophy, and religion, Lennox breaks down the arguments and issues most often cited in apologetics debates, reflecting on the several very public, sold-out encounters he has had with well-known atheists Richard Dawkins, Christopher Hitchens, Peter Singer, and Michael Shermer, among others. Sorbo and Lennox travel from Oxford to Cambridge to Israel, experiencing firsthand many of the sites that are key to fully understanding the false choice between science and faith. Sorbo probes Lennox on the issues and finds not only captivating answers, but deeper questions as well.
Created by Pensmore Films and Kharis Productions, Against the Tide promises to be a film that is revisited and referenced for generations.
