Sometimes when we wrestle with questions about God, nature, and how faith should inform our lives, it’s easy to feel alone in the fray of voices and information. In this BioLogos video repost, theologian Alister McGrath reminds us that Christians have been wrestling with big questions for a very long time—and that there’s never been just one way of looking at things.

“a deeper reading of nature”

Traditionally there is the physical and the metaphysical or the natural and and the supernatural.  

“A deeper reading of nature” indicates that there is no absolute boundary between the natural and the supernatural because there there is something deeper than the physical in nature. 

I agree because the rational does not fit into the definition of the natural or physical, and thus acts as a natural bridge between the physical and the spiritual.

However as long as we maintain a dualistic view of reality between the physical and the metaphysical, we are stuck with a chasm between them.
