The Revd Dr John Polkinghorne, KBE, FRS is a British particle physicist who, after 25 years of research and discovery in academia, resigned his post to become an Anglican priest and theologian. A professor of mathematical physics at Cambridge University, he was elected to the Royal Society in 1974. As a physicist he participated in the research that led to the theory of the quark, the smallest known particle. This engaging biography-cum-appraisal of his life and work uses Polkinghorne's own story to explore the most important questions: a scientist's view of God; why we pray, and what we expect; does the universe have a point?; what happens next?
