This timely biography uncovers the link between Hardy's worldly success as an empirical scientist and his lifelong preoccupation with religion. As a pupil of^Julian Huxley, grandson of Darwin's greatest supporter, T.H. Huxley, he was a thoroughly orthodox adherent of the Darwinian account of evolution. At the^same time his own religious experience led him to propose a ground-breaking resolution of the troubled relationship between the theory of evolution and^religion. ^^ Sir Alister Hardy FRS was Professor of Zoology at Oxford University from 1946 to 1961. His exploits in marine biology made him world famous and gained him his knighthood.^ In contrast, in 1962 he was also invited to give the prestigious Gifford Lectures on natural theology in Aberdeen University. He chose as his theme religious experience as a biologically based reality that has evolved through the process of natural selection. In 1969 he founded the Religious Experience Research Unit (RERU) in Oxford.
