Format: Paperback
If you want a book that makes you think deeply and logically, read this one. Polkinghorne is a physicist. Physics is in many ways the hardest science. More than any other it requires analytical conceptual thought. If you are not prepared to try at that, do not read this book.

If you are not sure whether you believe in God, are by nature a sceptic, but are prepared to make the effort to think about it, then you must read this book and are likely to find your beliefs altered and refined by the white heat of Polkinghorne's intellect: but as likely as not, immeasurably strengthened. So this is an important book, both for the person who reads it and for religion - and not just Christianity. It moves deism from being little more than myth to a philosophical discipline ranking alongside science.

Polkinghorne does something that very few others can do: he fits the concept of God into the scientific age.
