Advent is a time for deepening encounter with reality, including the ultimate reality made manifest in human form at Christmas and Epiphany. This thought-provoking book illuminates biblical thinking with striking new insights from the author's twin disciplines of theology and science at the cutting edge of physics. Through daily readings for Advent, Christmas, and Epiphany Polkinghorne explores such themes as the end of the world, individual destiny, unseen realities, heaven, hell, and suffering; this is not a book that hides behind platitudes or easy solutions, yet the author offers profound insight into his deep reflections on the nature, meaning, and purpose of creation. Suitable for individual study, as a guide to prayer during Advent and beyond, or as the basis of small group discussion, this book offers a unique and inspiring pathway into the coming of Christ in history, in our lives, and in what we shall be.
