Gifford Lectures at the University of Aberdeen in 2009. In this series, Professor Alister McGrath explores the human quest for meaning in the universe, especially in light of its apparent "fine-tuning" to permit the origination of life. Why do we long to make sense of things? Do we possess some kind of "homing instinct" for heaven? What is the significance of "fine-tuning"? And can the Christian faith engage with these observations meaningfully?
