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?

Alister McGrath, one of the world's leading authorities on science and religion, engages with the big questions that Dawkins and others have raised - including origins, the burden of proof, the meaning of life, the existence of God and our place in the universe. Informed by the best and latest scholarship, Inventing the Universe is a groundbreaking new primer for the complex yet fascinating relationship between science and faith.

Review:

McGrath's style is scholarly yet accessible and engaging, and he presents a convincing case for replacing the old "narrative of conflict"... Anyone with an interest in the science-religion debate, whatever their level of expertise, will welcome this balanced and thoughtful contribution. (The Independent Adrian Read)

Anyone, Christian, atheist or wavering, could gain from it. (Reform Magazine)

It's a tour de force..the lovely thing for me, given his enormous intellect, is his humility. (Engage Magazine)

A warm approach that invites us to move beyond the conflict narrative... The main purpose of the book is... to win partners into what McGrath calls a 'narrative of enrichment. (Scottish Christian Broadcast)

He uses brilliant logic and arguments from morality, logic and ethics to show that reality only makes sense in a Christian worldview. (Families First Magazine)

Book Description:

From the author of the bestselling The Dawkins Delusion - an accessible account of the biggest questions around science and faith, grounded in the very best scholarship.
