Research scientist and university teacher, Anglican clergyman and warden of a great theological library, the author has lectured and written extensively on religious and scientific questions. In this book he deals with a number of related problems, some old and some new, on the borderland, where science, philosophy and theology meet. How does our sense of time arise, and what does it mean? Is the universe an accident and human life without purpose, or is a doctrine of creation a necessary counterpart to the teachings of evolution? These and other questions are looked at afresh in the light of a carefully articulated understanding of the relation of time to eternity, which draws together the contributions of the ancient world, the insights of existentialists and liguistic philosophy, and the most recent trends in natural science.
