The Resurrection: A Bridge Between Two Worlds


How the Resurrection infused my rational faith with a passionate hope.
Alister McGrath
A young man who wishes to remain a sound atheist cannot be too careful of his reading. There are traps everywhere. What would have happened to me, I often wonder, if I had read those words of C. S. Lewis when I was 18 years old and been alerted to the danger of reading? At the time, I was a grumpy and frankly rather arrogant atheist. I was totally convinced that there was no God, and that anyone who thought there was needed to be locked up for her own good. I was majoring in the sciences at high school and had won a scholarship to study chemistry at Oxford University, beginning in October 1971. I had every reason to believe that studying the sciences further would confirm my rampant godlessness. While waiting to go up to Oxford, I decided to work my way through a pile of 'improving books.' Needless to say, none of them were religious. 

The move comes after Presbyterians and Methodists retained the denominations' definition of marriage as between a man and a woman.
