A dialogue for troubled friends and cultured despisers of Christianity
This exciting volume invites the reader to join in an intellectual and personal adventure, engaging mind and heart in a search for religious truth and the living God.
Polkinghorne and Welker, two of todays most respected and daring religious thinkers, here look freshly at Christianitys central theological questions. In a mutual encounter that allows a presentation by each with a reply by the other, they probe crucial issues of belief in God, Christian faith and hope, life in the Spirit, and the tenability of faith in light of current science and culture. Eschewing polemics, they show how our contemporary horizon re-illumines an ancient faith and how faith in turn offers a radical critique of our most cherished assumptions.
