For many, the 1990s were the decade in which people turned their backs on the materialistic and spiritually vacuous era of the 80s. In the new millennium, the search for meaning continues to be an issue for those who feel alienated in an increasingly fragmented society, or purposeless despite being involved in a frenzy of activity. How can we satisfy this spiritual hunger that continues to plague so many of us? In this thoughtful and stimulating book, Alister McGrath suggests that the search for meaning is ultimately a search for God. Drawing on thought-provoking extracts from the Bible and other Christian writings, he invites the reader to explore the very heart of the Christian faith - most notably its beliefs about the life, death and resurrection of Jesus Christ. The result is a lucid and profound apologetic demonstrating the appeal of Christianity for today's spiritual searchers.
"Through a series of brief meditations, McGrath takes a look at people's longing to find happiness. Full-colour illustrations, poetry and other brief selections from ancient and modern writers accompany each meditation. Much like Christian philosopher Blaise Pascal's Pensees, McGraths reflections are elegantly written defenses of the central elements of the Christian faith." Publishers Weekly "Not only is The Unknown God written in an accessible style, but also it is handsomely put together, decorated with sublime photos, classic paintings and well-chosen, thought provoking quotes."
