Why Can We Make Sense of the World?

How do we explain the order, reasonableness, and apparent design in our world? And why do our perceptions of the natural world correspond so well to our experiences? Based on his studies in science and philosophy, Alister McGrath moved from an aggressive atheism to a belief in the God of the Bible.  Here he helps us understand the history and philosophy of science and why we can make sense of the world.

This resource is part of a series on Christian Faith and Natural Sciences.
