Having trained and worked as an engineer, Peter Bold left his original profession at age 28 to study theology in preparation for ordained ministry. The shock of studying academic theology challenged him to reflect on the way he had previously thought about his faith. Peter reflects on how the way he had learnt to think as an engineer helped him—and can help others—think about faith and face some of the key challenges of today, such as the climate crisis or the struggle for truth in a world of fake news.

In this book he tells his story of how much of what he learnt as an engineer, such as laying solid foundations and the importance of communicating with others who are not experts, helped him to discover in theology a useful resource for developing a mature faith that can approach the world and some of its main questions with confidence and learn to engage with other Christians who may hold views different to his own.

Never miss a beat.
