A personal story of how Alister McGrath travelled from a youthful certainty of atheism, across troubled intellectual seas, to arrive on an island of faith where he learned to be at peace with uncertainty . . . McGrath explains why Christianity, in providing the big picture which accommodates science, is not only plausible but intellectually satisfying. Through a Glass Darkly is a book that will help anyone wishing, with sincerity and intellectual honesty, to reconsider the apparent conflict between science and Christian faith. They will find, as did McGrath, that “understanding what is going on” does not demand total certainty, that living with uncertainty is not an admission of failure but a recognition of reality and that faith in God is the way to peace.
