ABOUT THE BOOK
What is behind life itself – God, evolution or something else? Are we alone in this universe? How can we find out if such a thing is possible? How far can our rational powers take us? Have we the self-control to use our ever-increasing intelligence responsibly? Is there a place for humility in all of this? Many writers have long since discarded the notion of faith being a rational option, but as we find out more and more about what we do not know, this could very well be a premature conclusion. This book attempts to explore the spaces which science, rationality and faith occupy and poses the question as to whether or not they can coexist.

‘A remarkable book by an author with an academic doctorate who is my respected friend. It combines thoughtful consideration of epistemology (how and what can we know), philosophical questions, scientific discovery (especially quantum theory), aspects of ethics and theology, and whether there is space for religious (particularly Christian) faith. Extraordinarily, he is not a professional specialist in any of these fields - giving a lifetime to social work - but he has read widely and thought deeply. He brings both incisiveness and humility to his investigations. The result is compelling and winsome. I gladly commend it.’
