Synopsis

The often troubled relationship between science and religion was seemingly damaged further by the rise of the New Atheism, which insisted that science had essentially disproved not just God but also the value of religion. But there is increasing scepticism towards its often glib and superficial answers; and the big questions about faith, God and science haven't gone away - in fact, we seem to talk about them more than ever. 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. Informed by the very best and latest scholarship, INVENTING THE UNIVERSE remains accessible and engaging for a lay audience. Positive, compelling and highly readable, this is the thinking person's introduction to the complex and intriguing relationship between science and faith.
