about

Events of Grace demonstrates that the Christian faith can be fully consistent with a scientific world view. Arguing for the compatibility of philosophical naturalism and existentialism, Hardwick shows how the content of faith can be interpreted entirely in terms of the possibilities of human existing. He gives a complete existential and naturalistic account of sin, faith, God, the knowledge of God, Christology and the eschatological symbols that articulate Christian hope in the encounter with suffering and death.
