Reimagining Nature is a new introduction to the fast developing area of natural theology, written by one of the world’s leading theologians. The text engages in serious theological dialogue whilst looking at how past developments might illuminate and inform theory and practice in the present.
  • This text sets out to explore what a properly Christian approach to natural theology might look like and how this relates to alternative interpretations of our experience of the natural world
  • Alister McGrath is ideally placed to write the book as one of the world’s best known theologians and a chief proponent of natural theology
  • This new work offers an account of the development of natural theology throughout history and informs of its likely contribution in the present
  • This feeds in current debates about the relationship between science and religion, and religion and the humanities
  • Engages in serious theological dialogue, primarily with Augustine, Aquinas, Barth and Brunner, and includes the work of natural scientists, philosophers of science, and poets
