Clocks became common in late medieval Europe and the measurement of time began to rule everyday life. God's Clockmaker is a biography of England's greatest medieval scientist, a man who solved major practical and theoretical problems to build an extraordinary and pioneering astronomical and astrological clock. Richard of Wallingford (1292-1336), the son of a blacksmith, was a brilliant mathematician with a genius for the practical solution of technical problems. Trained at Oxford, he became a monk and then abbot of the great abbey of St Albans, where he built his clock. Although as abbot he held great power, he was also a tragic figure, becoming a leper. His achievement, nevertheless, is a striking example of the sophistication of medieval science, based on knowledge handed down from the Greeks via the Arabs.

This introductory college textbook is designed to help students think through the basic questions that arise in the study of religion. What is the nature of religious experience? How is religion part of our lives? How does religion shape the actions of individuals and communities? How does religion promote or inhibit human development and well-being? Developed and tested through team teaching and refined and revised through classroom use, Introduction to the Study of Religion brings together the expertise of five professors with distinct specialties. They draw on examples from a variety of world religions to explore these questions. Easily accessible to undergraduates, the text assumes little basic knowledge of religious traditions or history.

The purpose of this collection is to make available in a compact, convenient form some plain biblical answers to the sort of questions which are commonly voiced by people today, both in the church and on the fringe. Most of the questions dealt with are big ones and raise all sorts of issues. It is clear that within the limits laid down (roughly 1,000 words for each answer) the writers are not able to deal with the questions completely or adequately. Nor do they make any pretense of doing so. All they attempt here is to face the questions honestly and sympathetically in the light of modern trends of thought, to indicate the general lines of approach from a Christian viewpoint and to stimulate further thought and inquiry on the part of the reader. - Editor's preface.
