My rating: 4 of 5 stars

The book is an invitation to journey along another road. The questions that was faced and what was found helpful. Another way to think about science and faith that holds them together that is both rationally satisfying and imaginatively exciting. Science and faith can provide complementary maps of human identity. It is worth exploring and reasoning.

I have to admit that I am not a science expert or a science nerd. However, faith is very important to me and to how I look and live life. In light of that, this book was heavy on the science side and the failings that science has when it comes to moral issues. It weighed heavy on science and atheism which is something I long to understand. This is not a book to debunk science but to look at science in a different lens. Issues like the meaning of life, evil, and humanity can make the world uncertain when we all long for certainty. Can science fulfill that need? It is Christianity that gives us those answers. It is science that made the atomic bomb and it is Christanity that reveals men’s heart against a holy God and against each other

The narrative of Alister McGrath own journey of reconciling faith and science together is prevalent in this read and is one that will give a student of theology and science an appreciation for both. It is respecting the limits of science that science keeps its integrity and gives the bigger picture.

A read for the mind that questions, seeks, and reasons.

A Special Thank You to St. Martins Press and Netgalley for the ARC and the opportunity to post an honest review.
