Humankind has always been fascinated by the glories of the universe, whether in its microscopic detail or its vast extent. From time immemorial this has posed questions about origins, purpose and design. This work takes as its starting point the observable order of the universe and the ways in which the natural sciences point to a discoverable God. In it, Alister McGrath provides a guided tour to many forms of the search for meaning in the universe. The author refers to the great variety of searchers, from Ancient Greece to modern day, and explores their method with insight. Many widely accepted ideas are scrutinized and dilemmas of certainty and doubt are addressed and explained. Drawing on the great poets and philosophers, the history of science and even the methods of the great detectives of fiction, the author helps us to enter this world of human enquiry. Ilustrated throughout with thought-provoking images, this title ranges far and wide to unwrap the universal search for meaning. It plumbs the depths of the human condition beyond the finite to true fulfilment of the spirit.
