Wonders of the Living World

Curiosity, awe, and the meaning of life

The living world is beautiful, intricate, and highly ordered. Organisms flourish across virtually every location on earth, and biological scientists are constantly discovering more about them. These findings spark awe in those who study the natural world, and also raise questions about the meaning of what we see. What’s so special about life? Why are we here? Where is it all heading?

Encounter the living world, from individual molecules to whole ecosystems, through the eyes of six scientists who are also people of faith. Drawing on the work of two theologians, we will explore their research and their beliefs, testing the claim that the discoveries of science are consistent with the existence of a powerful, purposeful God.

The colour illustrated book, Wonders of the Living World: Curiosity, awe and the meaning of life, was published in the UK in June 2021, with accompanying materials for adult small groups and for secondary schools.

We will also publish a number of articles and videos on this site over the coming months. To receive notifications of new content, subscribe here.
