Through a Glass Darkly: Journeys through Science, Faith and Doubt - A Memoir [9781529327625]

(No reviews yet) Write a Review

In what he anticipates will be his final book, respected scientist and theologian Professor Alister McGrath shares the story of a life spent in pursuit of truth: first through the discipline of science, then in tandem with the Christian faith he found as a young man.

In Through a Glass Darkly Professor McGrath shares at length and for the first time how exactly he moved from atheism to faith while studying natural sciences at Oxford University, and how each discipline has informed the other throughout his life. This is a rich, inspiring read from one of today's greatest public theologians, and an important personal exploration of the relation of science and faith.

‘This book tells the story of how I, a restless freethinking atheist with a love of science, found my way to an unfashionable but deeply rewarding, rational and resilient way of understanding the world that I discovered was called Christianity. It is not an autobiography, although biographical details are inevitably woven into my narrative of discovery and reflection. Nor is it a work of theology, although I touch on many theological issues. It is the story of the loss of my intellectual innocence in the face of a world that obstinately refused to conform to my preconceptions of what it ought to be like.’

AUTHOR: Alister McGrath is the Andreas Idreos Professor of Science and Religion at Oxford University, and Fellow of Harris Manchester College, Oxford. After initial academic work in the natural sciences, Alister turned to the study of theology and intellectual history, while occasionally becoming engaged in broader cultural debates about the rationality and relevance of the Christian faith. He is the author of many academic and theological works, as well as the bestselling The Dawkins Delusion and, most recently, his acclaimed C. S. Lewis - A Life.
