More About the Author

Peter Vardy started out as a Chartered Accountant, becoming chairman of UK listed companies before he was 30. Following the birth of his children he started a Theology degree at King's College London, a degree which soon became an MA and then a PhD on the concept of Eternity, supervised by Stewart Sutherland. After a PGCE, Peter became a lecturer at Heythrop College, accompanying it when it became part of the University of London. He became Vice Principal in 1999, the first Anglican to hold such a senior position. Also in the late 1990s Peter began writing books for undergraduates, with the aim of reinvigorating his subject area. The Puzzle of God and The Puzzle of Ethics remain bestselling titles twenty years later, particularly popular with the generations of RS and Philosophy teachers and their proteges who also frequent Peter's conferences for Sixth Formers, which attract in excess of 10,000 people every year in the UK and more in Australia, New Zealand, Singapore and Hong Kong. Known for his amazing collection of colourful jumpers, his coffin/coffee table, his love of Harry Potter and Pooh Bear - and those videos - Peter is often credited with contributing to the resurgence in the popularity of Religious Studies and Philosophy in schools and universities. Theology wrote "Peter Vardy is a gifted communicator. He is the best popularizer of the philosophy of religion currently working in Britain..."
