Autorentext

ALISTER McGRATH is the Andreas Idreos Professor of Science and Religion at Oxford University, and Director of the Ian Ramsey Centre for Science and Religion. He holds Oxford doctorates inthe natural sciences, intellectual history and Christian theology. McGrath has written extensively on the interaction of science and Christian theology, and is the author of many books, including the international bestseller The Dawkins Delusion? Atheist Fundamentalism and the Denial of the Divine (SPCK, 2007), and the market-leading textbook Christian Theology: An Introduction (Wiley, 2016). McGrath also serves as the Gresham Professor of Divinity, a public professorship in the City of London, established in 1597, that promotes the public engagement of theology with the leading issues of the day.



Klappentext

For thoughtful Christians and Agnostics alike.

Are you looking to understand the role of Christianity in the making of the modern Western world?

Will provide encouragement and stimulation to develop a 'discipleship of the mind'.

In this inviting, accessible and exhilarating volume, Alister McGrath explores how the great tradition of Christian theological reflection can enrich our faith and deepen our engagement with the concerns and debates of the world around us.

The first part of the book deals with the purpose, place and relevance of Christian theology. It provides a helpful introduction to:

· the role of theology in transforming the way we see things;
· how we might handle theological ambiguity;
· the difference the Christian faith makes to our treatment of the natural world;
· the link between theology and apologetics.

The focus then switches to engaging with contemporary culture and concerns, including many issues raised by the new atheism. The second part of the work deals with the relation of the natural sciences and faith: here the core arguments of recent atheist writers are critically examined, including their demand for a 'New Enlightenment'.

In short, Mere Theology addresses matters of real importance for Christian life and thought. It will prove both encouraging and stimulating to all those concerned with developing a 'discipleship of the mind'.
