We just can't stop talking about the big questions around science and faith. They haven't gone away, as some predicted they might; in fact, we seem to talk about them more than ever. Far from being a spent force, religion continues to grow around the world. Meanwhile, Richard Dawkins and the New Atheists argue that religion is at war with science - and that we have to choose between them.
It's time to consider a different way of looking at these two great cultural forces. What if science and faith might enrich each other? What if they can together give us a deep and satisfying understanding of life? In this book, leading scientist and theologian Professor Alister McGrath engages with all the big questions that Dawkins and others have raised, including origins, the burden of proof, meaning, the existence of God and our place in the universe.
Positive, compelling and highly readable, this is the thinking-person's introduction to the complex and intriguing relationship between science and faith.
