Written by one of the world's foremost religious authorities, A Christian Faith for Today provides both Christians and sceptics with a much-needed response to modernity's challenge to God.
Most people accept that our world is regulated by the laws of natural science, but how should Christian believers reconcile this with faith, incarnation and a loving and intelligent Creator?
W. Montgomery Watt returns to the Biblical stories and sources at the roots of modern faith and to theological problems such as Jesus' divinity and humanity. He suggests how the miraculous might be understood from a rational perspective and the genuinely transcendental distinguished from allegory and symbolism.
Sympathetic to the Gospel, yet acceptable to the modern mind, this is a timely and sensitive exposition of God's manifestation and intervention in the world and of his purposes with us and for us.
W. Montgomery Watt is a world authority on religion who has held professorships at the universities of Edinburgh, Toronto and Georgetown and the College de France. He is a priest of the Scottish Episcopalian Church and has published over thirty books on Christianity and Islam.
