The Flaw in the Universe

When we look at the world around us, one of the most common observations is that things have a tendency to go wrong. People make mistakes, have accidents and some of them commit deliberate acts of violence. Disease affects every single species of plant and animal on the planet. Natural disasters kill millions of people and decimate animal populations. Countless people and animals suffer through no fault of their own. Scientists explain these events in various ways depending upon whether they involve errors in human choices and actions or whether they are caused by natural events. Theologians give us a different set of religious explanations. At times it can appear as if there is a fundamental flaw in the universe. In this book, Adrian Hough uses his training and expertise as both a scientist and a theologian to approach this flaw from both directions and comes up with the astonishing result that both sets of reasoning might have the same fundamental explanation. Using this discovery he then develops a way of reconciling belief in a loving God with the hurt and damage which is caused when things go wrong.

Adrian Hough has degrees in science and theology from Oxford University. After scientific research he trained for ordination and is now chaplain to the Bishop of Exeter in England.


A significant contribution to our understanding of suffering and evil as well as to the dialogue between science and theology. (Rt Revd Michael Langrish, Bishop of Exeter) Dr Hough frees Christian discussion of sin from the moraliser's bedroom and brings it into the laboratory, where he and his readers can engage in a proper study of why things go wrong, both theologically and scientifically, in our world. (Rt Revd David Walker, Bishop of Dudley)
