By John Polkinghorne
Out of Stock
John Polkinghorne's scientific and theological backgrounds make for a unique perspective on the themes of Advent, Christmas and Epiphany. This book explores themes such as the end of the world, individual destiny, unseen realities, Heaven, Hell and suffering; this is not a book that hides behind platitudes or easy solutions yet the author offers profound insight into his deep reflections on the nature, meaning and purpose of Creation. The material is structured on a weekly basis, with challenging questions on each section. This is suitable for use in Advent groups or other small group sessions.
