Have evolution, science and the trappings of the modern world killed off God irrevocably? And what do we lose if we choose not to believe in him? From Newton and Descartes to Darwin and the discovery of the genome, religion has been pushed back further and further while science has gained ground. But what fills the void that religion leaves behind? This book is an attempt to look at these questions and to suggest a third way between the easy consolations of religion and the persuasive force of science that the everyday modern reader can engage with.

About the Author:

MARK VERNON is a writer, broadcaster, blogger (www.philosophyandlife.com) and journalist. He published Business: The Key Concepts with Routledge in 2002 as well as chapters on philosophy in various academic books. He was a priest in the Church of England 1994-1996 and holds a PhD in Philosophy from Warwick University, UK. He is the author The Philosophy of Friendship (Palgrave Macmillan, 2005).

Review:

'Philosophically erudite, yet engagingly personal, Vernon's book presents a fluent account of his spiritual journey towards agnosticism'. - John Cottingham, Professor of Philosophy at the University of Reading, and author of On the Meaning of Life and The Spiritual Dimension

'Fewer and fewer of us, at least in post-Christian Britain, are committed churchgoing believers; few of us on the other hand are militant atheists; which means that there is plenty of space between for people with a sense of wonder at scientific discoveries and an appreciation of art, music and philosophy: Mark Vernon's rich, moving and entertaining account of 'Christian agnosticism' is exactly what they have been waiting for.' - Fergus Kerr, Honorary Fellow in the School of Divinity at the University of Edinburgh
