Originally published in 1908, Lodge applies his background in physics to the study of Christian Theology. He aims to reconcile religious doctrine to scientific theory, calling for a re-interpretation of biblical texts to allow for the integration of science while simultaneously making a case for the acceptance of miracles in the scientific community. This title will be of interest to students of Religious Studies as well as to general readers interested in problems of existence.
