'A Man of Many Parts' is an inspired homage to the life and thought of John Bowker, cleric, lecturer and broadcaster. Author of 'The Sense of God', 'Is God a Virus?' and 'The Sacred Neuron', Bowker is an independent thinker of profound erudition with an unquenchable thirst for knowledge and understanding. This collection of essays is a study in responses to the work of an exceptional scholar whose humane spirit and empathetic approach to theology has influenced countless people. Bowker has striven for years to reconcile faith and belief with reason, and to find the truth behind religious thought. 'A Man of Many Parts' continues in his intellectual tradition, with essays from Rowan Williams, Jane Shaw, William J. Abraham and others tackling his body of work from a wide variety of perspectives. Whether re-examining the Son of Man in the context of the life of the prophet Daniel, or discussing how both neuroscience and theology seek to map the vastness of human nature, these essays build on Bowker's rigorous analysis in the highest possible accolade to his bibliography. This collection is a priceless treasure trove for anyone with a love of learning, an original mind and a limitless breadth of interests.
