What is time? How does it originate? How will it end? Has it an end? What is its relation to life? Can we at all visualise life without time and time without life? Time and life are intimately interlinked.

A modest attempt is made in this book to answer these significant questions from the perspective of science (physics), philosophy and theology. It is emphasised that time has a narrative (historical and fictive) function in our lives. This enables us to visualise time as constitutive us, including all our activities and non-activities. Thus times lives essentially in our human hearts.
