For many, the 1990s were the decade in which people turned their backs on the materialistic and spiritually vacuous era of the 80s. In the new millennium, the search for meaning continues to be an issue for those who feel alienated in an increasingly fragmented society, or purposeless despite being involved in a frenzy of activity. How can we satisfy this spiritual hunger that continues to plague so many of us? In this thoughtful and stimulating book, Alister McGrath suggests that the search for meaning is ultimately a search for God. Drawing on thought-provoking extracts from the Bible and other Christian writings, he invites the reader to explore the very heart of the Christian faith - most notably its beliefs about the life, death and resurrection of Jesus Christ. The result is a lucid and profound apologetic demonstrating the appeal of Christianity for today's spiritual searchers.
Alister E. McGrath (DPhil and DD, University of Oxford; Fellow of the Royal Society of Arts) is professor of theology, ministry, and education, and head of the Centre for Theology, Religion, and Culture at King's College, London. He is the author and editor of numerous books, including the award-winning The Passionate Intellect: Christian Faith and the Discipleship of the Mind. A former atheist, he is respectful yet critical of the new atheist movement and regularly engages in debate and dialogue with its leaders.
