Science, Faith, and the Sense of Wonder at Nature

Professor Allister McGrath shows how the Christian faith allows us to make sense of and engage positively with the natural world. He explores the experiences of awe, wonder and beauty and our attempts to understand and explain the natural world. Ultimately he helps us see that beauty is not found in nature but comes through it. Nature is a signpost the points to the greater glory of God.
