DESCRIPTION

Atheists assert that the natural world has no meaning or purpose, but in this thought-provoking book Denis Alexander offers a different perspective. He argues that evolutionary biological data are inconsistent with a necessarily purposeless world, and that Christian creation doctrine provides context and stimulus for the study of the natural world. The author goes on to question whether a belief in an omnipotent, loving Creator is consistent with a world of pain and suffering.

From a lifetime's study of the biological sciences, he suggests that while the cost of existence is extremely high, perhaps carbon-based life is the only way in which intelligent beings can exist who can freely respond to God's love.

This book is a fascinating, nuanced study that will challenge your preconceptions as it explores whether there is any ultimate purpose to be found in the world of biology.
