Why are we here? What is the impact of religion on the development of culture across the world? Can we say anything meaningful about God? In this book, Stephen Cherry puts theology in the spotlight and reveals how it can be a fulfilling, fun, and important area of study. For religious believer and atheist alike, engagement with the deep and seemingly unanswerable questions that occur to us, often at significant or difficult times in life, is fascinating. Theology offers the opportunity to explore how people today and through the ages have tried to answer these questions. This book introduces some of the biggest puzzles unravelled by theology, highlights the importance of agnosticism, and discusses how philosophy and theology relate and differ. For anybody curious about history, literature, philosophy, fundamentalism and the mysteries of human faith, read on.
The Revd. Dr. Stephen Cherry is the Dean of King’s College Cambridge and an active writer and speaker on Christian spirituality and practical theology. He was previously a Residentiary Canon of Durham Cathedral and Director of Ministerial Development and Parish Support for the diocese of Durham in the UK.
