All that matters about God. 'All That Matters' is an exciting new series from Hodder, with authors that matter writing about subjects that matter.

If 'God is dead', then we spend an incredible amount of time talking about him. 'New atheists' like Richard Dawkins and Christopher Hitchens have created a huge new interest in debating (and demolishing) the existence of God. But in this book the philosopher Mark Vernon takes a more nuanced approach, pulling together fascinating strands from philosophy, literature, science, theology and psychology. He argues that there is something odd about the way God is discussed today - as if the divine were being examined in a test tube, in a search for empirical and objective confirmation of his (or her ) existence. Yet for people of faith, today and through the ages, God is nothing if not subjectively real; they know God, insofar as they do, in their lives. It's more like the love of a parent than Newton's apple falling from the tree.
