Résumé

Can the existence of God be proved by reason alone? Has scientific discovery destroyed the intellectual basis for religion? Does the presence of evil in the world mean that God does not care about us? And why does fundamentalism flourish in an age of progress? In Big Questions: God, Mark Vernon addresses these and many more perennial dilemmas, drawing on physics and philosophy, spiritual traditions and religious experience.
He explores the place of religion in relation to science, in making sense of evil, in understanding history and in explaining value. Asking the big questions again for himself, he finds new areas of thought and perception. Big Questions: God is a subtle but compelling argument for the necessity of a spiritual dimension in modern society and offers profound insights on humanity's constant battle to make sense of the transcendent.
