We live in an age when the growth of the Internet has made it easier than ever to gain access to information and accumulate knowledge. But information is not the same as meaning, nor is knowledge identical with wisdom. Many people feel engulfed by a tsunami of facts in which they can find no meaning. In thirteen short, accessible chapters McGrath, author of the bestselling The Dawkins Delusion, leads the reader through a nontechnical discussion of science and faith. How do we make sense of the world around us? Are belief in science and the Christian faith compatible? Does the structure of the universe point toward the existence of God? McGrath's goal is to help readers see that science is neither anathema to faith, nor does it supersede faith. Both science and faith help with the overriding human desire to make sense of things. Faith is a complex idea. It is not a blind leap into the dark but a joyful discovery of a bigger picture of wondrous things of which we are all a part.… (mere)

Well argued modern presentation of the traditional argument from design and morality for the existence of God and a purposeful reality. It reaches the impasse between theism and atheism where many thinkers divide while others become fence-sitters: Creator God as best explanation for what there is. ( )

Another excellent book from McGrath, considering the quest for meaning. Science, he contends, is unable to answer the big questions, however it does point towards the transcendent. Far from being "blind faith", as Dawkins would argue, Christianity demands that we are critical and reasoned in our beliefs. Short chapters make for an accessible read despite the depth of discussion. ( )

NCLA Review -McGrath is a well-known British academic with over 70 publications in the fields of theology, science and faith, and Christian apologetics. He garnered some media exposure with his recent book The Dawkins Delusion, tackling Richard Dawkins, whom he described as “embarrassingly ignorant of Christian theology.” In this book McGrath continues his dialogue on humanity’s search for a “big picture” to help us make sense of things, his own journey from atheist to Christian, and his position that Christianity is as robust an intellectual belief system as atheism. McGrath is an important writer, whether one agrees with him or not. For libraries that have none of McGrath’s works, this is a fine place to start. Rating: 3 —KLF ( )
