Faith and Wisdom in Science

Faith And Wisdom In Science [Pdf/ePub] eBook

Faith and Wisdom in Science by Tom McLeish Book Summary:

Takes a fresh approach to the 'science and religion' debate, taking a scientist's reading of the enigmatic and beautiful Book of Job as a centrepiece, and asking what science might ultimately be for. Rather than conflicting with faith, science can be seen as a deeply religious activity.

Faith And Wisdom In Science [Pdf/ePub] eBook

Faith and Wisdom in Science by Tom McLeish Book Summary:

"Can you Count the Clouds?" asks the voice of God from the whirlwind in the stunningly beautiful catalogue of nature-questions from the Old Testament Book of Job. Tom McLeish takes a scientist's reading of this ancient text as a centrepiece to make the case for science as a deeply human and ancient activity, embedded in some of the oldest stories told about human desire to understand the natural world. Drawing on stories from the modern science of chaos and uncertainty alongside medieval, patristic, classical and Biblical sources, Faith and Wisdom in Science challenges much of the current 'science and religion' debate as operating with the wrong assumptions and in the wrong space. Its narrative approach develops a natural critique of the cultural separation of sciences and humanities, suggesting an approach to science, or in its more ancient form natural philosophy - the 'love of wisdom of natural things' - that can draw on theological and cultural roots. Following the theme of pain in human confrontation with nature, it develops a 'Theology of Science', recognising that both scientific and theological worldviews must be 'of' each other, not holding separate domains. Science finds its place within an old story of participative reconciliation with a nature, of which we start ignorant and fearful, but learn to perceive and work with in wisdom. Surprisingly, science becomes a deeply religious activity. There are urgent lessons for education, the political process of decision-making on science and technology, our relationship with the global environment, and the way that both religious and secular communities alike celebrate and govern science.

Eternity, Time, and the Life of Wisdom

Faith And Wisdom In Science [Pdf/ePub] eBook

Eternity, Time, and the Life of Wisdom by Matthew L. Lamb Book Summary:

Father Matthew Lamb has devoted his life to recalling students and believers to the reality that there is a life of wisdom, a way of living in the light of eternity, living in accord with what is highest in the human person. In our busy lives we often get distracted by the daily difficulties that we face, until it seems that we are simply living in order to work, pay taxes, and go shopping. In the midst of this environment, Father Lamb powerfully reminds us that our true identity is known only in light of Christ's Resurrection; we can find ourselves only through knowing and loving God the Father in Christ and his Spirit. With rigorous theological erudition, Father Lamb explores the Christian life of wisdom in the context of Enlightenment cultures.

Let There Be Science

Faith And Wisdom In Science [Pdf/ePub] eBook

Let There Be Science by Tom McLeish,David Hutchings Book Summary:

Why is it that science has consistently thrived wherever the Christian faith can be found? Why is it that so many great scientists - past and present - attribute their motivation and their discoveries, at least partially, to their Christian beliefs? Why are the age-old writings of the Bible so full of questions about natural phenomena? And, perhaps most importantly of all, why is all this virtually unknown to the general public? Too often, it would seem, science has been presented to the outside world as a robotic, detached, unemotional enterprise. Too often, Christianity is dismissed as being an ancient superstition. In reality, neither is the case. Science is a deeply human activity, and Christianity is deeply reasonable. Perhaps this is why, from ancient times right up to today, many individuals have been profoundly committed to both - and have helped us to understand more and more about the extraordinary world that we live in. As authors Tom McLeish and David Hutchings examine the story of science, and look at the part that Christianity has played, they uncover a powerful underlying reason for doing science in the first place. In example after example, ranging from 4000 BC to the present day, they show that thinking with a Christian worldview has been intimately involved with, and sometimes even directly responsible for, some of the biggest leaps forward ever made. Ultimately, they portray a biblical God who loves Science - and a Science that truly needs God.

Exploring Faith and Reason

Faith And Wisdom In Science [Pdf/ePub] eBook

Exploring Faith and Reason by Bruce Glass Book Summary:

Have you ever wondered if it is possible to be a conservative evangelical Christian and also believe in biological evolution-believe that the Earth is 4.5 billion years old and that human beings share a common ancestor with not only chimpanzees, but also with mice and even earthworms? In Exploring Faith and Reason, you will find that it is not only possible, it is an essential element of how many Christians come to more fully appreciate the complexity and the great glory of God's creation. Of course many people-Christians and non-Christians alike-think that Christianity and evolution are opposing concepts. They perceive several specific points of conflict between them. Bruce Glass addresses each of these concerns by citing Scripture and the world's most respected theologians and by the application of reason. Revealed is a deeper and richer understanding of Biblical Scripture and its history. But most importantly, readers will gain a greater appreciation of the power and the capabilities of a living God that transcends space and time, as this insight is united with the findings of science. Kirkus Reviews described Exploring Faith and Reason this way: "Smart, well-informed... lucid, engaging... Glass delivers a superb exposition of Darwinian theory and a meticulous, sharply reasoned discussion of the evidence that supports it. His logic is impeccable when he insists that evolutionary theory does not rule out the existence of God." Tremper Longman III, Ph.D., Robert H. Gundry Professor of Biblical Studies at Westmont College said, "As a non-scientist, I found that Exploring Faith and Reason presents an accessible, fascinating, and compelling presentation of evolution. As a biblical scholar, I appreciate Glass' grasp of theological issues and the biblical text. His conclusion that evolution and Christianity are compatible is a crucial message for the church today." Peter Enns, Ph.D., Professor of Christian Studies at Eastern University said, "Glass has provided a thorough look at the evidence and the processes of evolution, along side a compelling case for its compatibility with Christianity. His theological analysis is very sound as he addresses several of the commonly perceived points of tension between the Christian faith and evolution. For a thorough understanding of these issues, this book is among the very best resources available." Reverend Jordan Ogden, Lead Pastor at Antioch Community Church in Dallas, said: "Mr. Glass tackles a historically controversial topic with finesse. Wherever one may be on the issue of evolution, Glass' superb scholarship and unbiased commentary on issues of faith does not disappoint." Reverend Dr. Kristin Huffman, Associate Pastor at Memorial Drive Presbyterian Church in Houston, said: "Bruce Glass has provided a thought provoking look at the most significant theological issues arising from the advent of evolutionary science. Whatever their conclusions, readers will find Mr. Glass' treatment a welcome reminder of the richness and depth of God's Word, as well as a fresh perspective on God's glorious creation." ForeWord Clarion Reviews described it as, "Well written, thoroughly researched, and honestly fair... The book's thorough and eminently readable scientific explanations provide general science readers with a lucid understanding of this complex subject." Reverend Michael Dowd, author of Thank God for Evolution, endorsed by six Nobel Prize-winning scientists and by religious leaders across the spectrum, said that, "In Exploring Faith and Reason. Bruce Glass has emerged as a fresh voice for the reconciliation of head and heart. Couched in the language and theology of conservative evangelical Christianity, Mr. Glass' book provides a welcomed bridge between an evidential worldview and traditional Christian conviction. Believers and non-believers alike will find much of value in these pages."

The Poetry and Music of Science

Faith And Wisdom In Science [Pdf/ePub] eBook

The Poetry and Music of Science by Tom McLeish Book Summary:

What human qualities are needed to make scientific discoveries, and which to make great art? Many would point to 'imagination' and 'creativity' in the second case but not the first. This book challenges the assumption that doing science is in any sense less creative than art, music or fictional writing and poetry, and treads a historical and contemporary path through common territories of the creative process. The methodological process called the 'scientific method' tells us how to test ideas when we have had them, but not how to arrive at hypotheses in the first place. Hearing the stories that scientists and artists tell about their projects reveals commonalities: the desire for a goal, the experience of frustration and failure, the incubation of the problem, moments of sudden insight, and the experience of the beautiful or sublime. Selected themes weave the practice of science and art together: visual thinking and metaphor, the transcendence of music and mathematics, the contemporary rise of the English novel and experimental science, and the role of aesthetics and desire in the creative process. Artists and scientists make salient comparisons: Defoe and Boyle; Emmerson and Humboldt, Monet and Einstein, Schumann and Hadamard. The book draws on medieval philosophy at many points as the product of the last age that spent time in inner contemplation of the mystery of how something is mentally brought out from nothing. Taking the phenomenon of the rainbow as an example, the principles of creativity within constraint point to the scientific imagination as a parallel of poetry.

The Science of God

Faith And Wisdom In Science [Pdf/ePub] eBook

The Science of God by Gerald L. Schroeder Book Summary:

For the readers of The Language of God, another instant classic from "a sophisticated and original scholar" (Kirkus Reviews) that disputes the idea that science is contrary to religion. In The Science of God, distinguished physicist and Biblical scholar Gerald L. Schroeder demonstrates the surprising parallels between a variety of Biblical teachings and the findings of biochemists, paleontologists, astrophysicists, and quantum physicists. In a brilliant and wide-ranging discussion of key topics that have divided science and religion—free will, the development of the universe, the origin of life, and the origin of man—Schroeder argues that the latest science and a close reading of the Bible are not just compatible but interdependent. This timely reissue of The Science of God features a brand-new preface by Schroeder and a compelling appendix that addresses the highly publicized experiment in 2008 in which scientists attempted to re-create the chemical composition of the cosmos immediately after the Big Bang. It also details Schroeder’s lucid explanations of complex scientific and religious concepts, such as the theory of relativity, the passage of time, and the definitions of crucial Hebrew words in the Bible. Religious skeptics, Biblical literalists, scientists, students, and physicists alike will be riveted by Schroeder’s remarkable contribution to the raging debate between science and religion.

Theology and Evolutionary Anthropology

Faith And Wisdom In Science [Pdf/ePub] eBook

Theology and Evolutionary Anthropology by Celia Deane-Drummond,Agustín Fuentes Book Summary:

This book sets out some of the latest scientific findings around the evolutionary development of religion and faith and then explores their theological implications. This unique combination of perspectives raises fascinating questions about the characteristics that are considered integral for a flourishing social and religious life and allows us to start to ask where in the evolutionary record they first show up in a distinctly human manner. The book builds a case for connecting theology and evolutionary anthropology using both historical and contemporary sources of knowledge to try and understand the origins of wisdom, humility, and grace in ‘deep time’. In the section on wisdom, the book examines the origins of complex decision-making in humans through the archaeological record, recent discoveries in evolutionary anthropology, and the philosophical richness of semiotics. The book then moves to an exploration of the origin of characteristics integral to the social life of small-scale communities, which then points in an indirect way to the disposition of humility. Finally, it investigates the theological dimensions of grace and considers how artefacts left behind in the material record by our human ancestors, and the perspective they reflect, might inform contemporary concepts of grace. This is a cutting-edge volume that refuses to commit the errors of either too easy a synthesis or too facile a separation between science and religion. As such, it will be of interest to scholars of religious studies and theology – especially those who interact with scientific fields – as well as academics working in anthropology of religion.

A History of the Warfare of Science with Theology in Christendom, Vol. I (in Two Volumes)

Faith And Wisdom In Science [Pdf/ePub] eBook

A History of the Warfare of Science with Theology in Christendom, Vol. I (in Two Volumes) by Andrew D. White Book Summary:

The battle between science and religion in American popular life is as old as America itself. By the late 19th century, it had reached a fever pitch, culminating in the two-volume 1896 work A History of the Warfare of Science with Theology in Christendom. The result of thirty years of research by historian and educator ANDREW DICKSON WHITE (1832-1918), a founder of Cornell University, this is White's attack on intellectually stifling religious dogma and his explication of the "conflict thesis" of outright warfare between science and religion. While scholars today generally see the situation as more nuanced, the conflict thesis remains a popular metaphor in the mind of the general public, and White's work continues to speak to us today. H.L. Mencken called this "one of the noblest monuments of American scholarship," and it will fascinate anyone who is troubled by the ongoing influence by religious authorities into secular science. In Volume I, White looks at the transformation of our understanding of the world from a primarily religious one of divine creation to a primarily scientific one informed by evolution, astronomy, and biology.

Meditations of an Exile

Faith And Wisdom In Science [Pdf/ePub] eBook

Meditations of an Exile by Tom Reidy Book Summary:

Meditations of an Exile is a collection of essays on a wide variety of unique religious topics, some of which have rarely been covered anywhere else. These include: why the Roman Empire and slavery are not condemned in Scripture; seeming conflict between the two natures of Christ; intriguing parallels between the history of Biblical Israel that reflect in reverse the past, present, and possible future of Christianity; why the modern state of Israel is not the Israel foretold in Biblical prophecy; the Eternal Design; why the Church tolerates and even supports pro-abortion politicians; why evangelization will not work in the West; who were the "giants" so often referred to in the Old Testament; is it evident from Scripture that intelligent life does not exist beyond earth? Meditations concludes with a commentary on the passion and death of Jesus that analyzes why the Jewish authorities arrested Jesus in the way they did and why the Romans never considered Jesus a political threat even after Palm Sunday.

Proof of God

Faith And Wisdom In Science [Pdf/ePub] eBook

Proof of God by Charles De Silva Book Summary:

While extending a strong challenge to the superstition of atheism, the principal aim of this book is to demonstrate the fact that the major scientific discoveries that have been made so far, distinctively and expressly reveal the existence of an intelligent and omnipotent Designer who has thoughtfully and intentionally instituted all universal laws with stark precision and accuracy. In this discussion I have also emphasized the incapability of science to stand alone as a final deciding instrument on matters that extend beyond the natural realm. Hence no proof of a Divine Existence can be established by reference to science alone, but through logical reasoning based on obvious and explicit facts. I have also highlighted the reality that most scientific phenomena cannot be explained without recourse to the role of a Supernatural Power. In this book I have put forward a chain of very rational arguments most of which originated in my mind at various occasions and hence would be new and interesting to the reader who would be led towards the definite conclusion that this universe could not have been the outcome of an accident or random chance, but the result of an intentional plan of a Supernatural Power. A unique feature of this book is that all the arguments presented by me here are determined upon logical conclusions based on common sense and scientifically established facts and not on sheer imaginary hypothesis. On my contemplative reasoning I am also presenting a proposition which I have named as the Theory of Irresistible Cessation of Matter and Irreversible Nature of Life as proof of the existence of a precise Divine plan. Charles de Silva

Human Significance in Theology and the Natural Sciences

Faith And Wisdom In Science [Pdf/ePub] eBook

Human Significance in Theology and the Natural Sciences by Christopher L. Fisher Book Summary:

The medieval worldview that regarded human beings as at the center of God's plans for His universe has long been regarded as obsolete; its synthesis of Christian theology and Greek philosophy having collapsed under the weight of Copernicus, Galileo, and Darwin. The popular stereotype is that Science, both in the Copernican revolution that dethroned the earth-centered view of the cosmos and in subsequent developments in evolutionary theory and general relativity, has marginalized and trivialized human existence, revealing humanity's place in the cosmos to be accidental, peripheral, and ultimately meaningless. However, an investigation into both modern Christian theology and contemporary twenty-first century Science reveals just the opposite, providing solid evidence in the interdisciplinary dialogue concerning the significance of humanity within the universe. In this important study, Christopher Fisher analyzes several modern theologians, including Wolfhart Pannenberg, Karl Rahner, and John Zizioulas, to reveal how contemporary ecumenical theology is deeply and intrinsically committed to a high view of human cosmic significance as a consequence of Christianity's indelible Trinitarian and incarnational faith. Fisher then demonstrates how research in contemporary natural Science confirms this finding in its own way, as recent primate intelligence studies, artificial intelligence research, and even the quest for extra-terrestrial intelligence reveal the wonder of human uniqueness. A contemporary version of the teleological argument also resurfaces in consideration of cosmic evolutionary perspectives on human existence. Even ecological concerns take on a new poignancy with the realization that, among material creatures, only human beings are capable of addressing the world's situation. This interdisciplinary study uncovers the surprising coherence and convergence of Christian Theology and Natural Science on the subject of human existence and significance here at the beginning of the twenty-first century, and it highlights the very unique role of humanity in global and cosmic history.

Theology As Wisdom

Faith And Wisdom In Science [Pdf/ePub] eBook

Theology As Wisdom by Silas Dias Book Summary:

The author proposes a new way of teaching Reformed Theology, in particular the teaching of systematic theology. He proposes a viable integration between theology and life, between its content and its context, and this the author calls "Theology as Wisdom." The book proposes itself as a challenge for the need to correct the current curricula in theological education and, at the same time, as a key toward the construction of new educational projects. The book initiates its quest from the theological locus of defining theology as a reflection that occurs within the faith community -a reflection about the original and present character of this faith in relation to the general community of human beings, within the missio Dei in the world. The author provides a perspective for building a viable curriculum that relates the sources of the Christian tradition to the dynamics of present day society with its needs and challenges, and by doing so also to contribute to bridging the gaps between different approaches and traditions of Christian communities and theologians. Silas B. Dias makes clear that Christian Theology is above all wisdom from God and that the encounter between this concept and Christian education offers an evident enrichment to the task of theological education. The gracious fact of this enterprise is to understand Jesus Christ as docta fidei, docta caritas, and docta spes (Wisdom of Faith, Love and Hope). He is the Wisdom of God that is available to us so that the theological task may turn into a living enterprise.

Science and Spirituality

Faith And Wisdom In Science [Pdf/ePub] eBook

Science and Spirituality by Jesuis Laplume Book Summary:

You have been taught, by most of society, that Science has proven that there can be no God. That is nonsense - this is just a belief, even a Dogma of Science, but it is not possible to use Science to discuss the presence of a God. That sort of thing was assumed out when Traditional Science was born almost four centuries ago, and for good reason. There was way too much to do in the study of mass and Energy - besides no one knew how to measure a thought, an emotion, a belief, etc., way back then. Although we now know how to measure brain changes when we experience such things, we still do not know how to actually measure any of these 'pure information' processes as such. If you are going to do something well, you must first establish a sound foundation. Listing all of your explicit (openly stated) assumptions and also finding out your implicit (implied, but not yet openly stated) assumptions is critical. Study of the history of Science shows that this has not yet been done well. Some really important work is needed here. So far much of Science has been built upon shifting sand. Ever since the great discoveries of the early 1900s, where it became obvious that emotional thoughts could really influence the state of waves and particles, then the reality of probability at the foundation of matter, changes should have been made in how we taught ourselves about Science. When Einstein showed us that mass and energy were just two states of the same thing, more changes in teaching about the founding assumptions of interactions was needed. When he then showed us (proven by others) that gravity distorted space, even more interactions came to light. In just about every field of Science, new interactions are showing up all of the time. The supposed of leaders of scientific societies have responded by making the impossibility of some interactions a definite Dogma that cannot be discussed, let alone questioned. The study of Philosophy, within which the spirituality of Religions is found, has been seriously damaged by most experts who try to use the logical processes of Science in a field that is all about non-logical processes. Logic can only be a minor tool here, when you start studying thoughts, emotions, out-of-body experiences, belief processes and effects, etc. In the Far East, some gurus and avatars are doing totally non-logical things, but that is not being properly studied by many scientists; because these things are non-logical and cannot be true - therefore cannot be studied. This latter choice is certainly anti-Science, but is pervasive in many fields worthy of study. If it is supposedly not true, than that should be shown to be a newly-defined reality. Only when Theology, as well as Philosophy as a whole, start to use non-logical approaches to study the field of non-logical processes will we see huge strides in this area. You are a spiritual being having a human experience. This human journey will bring you lessons to be learned as you grow in understanding; as well as required action, in your destined quest towards your Divine Creator (who we call God, Allah, Jehovah, etc.). Humans seem to have a very powerful need to understand both Who we are and Why we are here; although that has largely been trained out of us, even on our parent's knee. In the end, however, you will have to find out and follow your path to The Way that will help you grow spiritually. In the end, Destiny will win out! This small book is meant to stir up the interest of you readers who are starting to wonder about these critical 'Who we are' and 'Why we are here' questions. It is written by a student, for other students. We humans are evolving from the thinking but fearful Homo sapiens species into the loving Homo spiritus species. Learning how to truly Love demands an answer to these great questions. The time to start on your journey is NOW!

Amatus by Alydia Rackham Book Summary:

Crispian has lived in the city of Tutus all his life. He is used to the darkness that always cloaks the world, broken only by the lamps that huddle in the streets and winding alleys. He knows what it is to live in a segregated quarter, away from the prejudiced Rubrum race. He takes comfort in the company of his few friends, and the Minister--the only people who do not look twice at his missing eye and hand. But when he allows a young woman named Aiva to enter his life--a Rubrum, no less--Crispian comes under attack by forces he can neither see nor understand. Aiva assures him that she knows a place where he can find sanctuary from all of them. Can Crispian trust her to guide him safely out of Tutus, through the cursed ruins of an ancient city and the depths of an evil forest, to a realm that promises to be more wonderful than he can imagine?

Directorium Asceticum

Faith And Wisdom In Science [Pdf/ePub] eBook

Directorium Asceticum by John Baptist Scaramelli,John Baptist Scaramelli Sj,Brother Hermenegild Book Summary:

This is a four volume set of books. This is volume 1 The" Guide to the Spiritual Life," as it is called in this edition, although more immediately addressed to Directors of souls, may be used with advantage by all Christians who aspire to perfection. The author himself makes this remark in his Preface or Introduction. It is essentially a practical work, being intended to supply a defect which the author observed in the treatises of previous writers. These had indeed delivered excellent maxims of perfection, but not in such a form as to be immediately applicable to the needs of individual souls. F. Scaramelli has not failed to set forth the scientific, theological, basis of each branch of his subject, following herein mainly the doctrine of St Thomas; but he has always kept before his eyes the needs of those Priests who would desire to have some assistance in directing souls called to something higher than the ordinary Christian life. Each volume contains a Skeleton outline for sermons for the Sunday s of the year, treating of the material dealt with in that particular volume. Volume 1 contains The Means to Arrive at Christian Perfection, which include the Desire of Perfection, choice of a good director, reading of spiritual books, meditation on the maxims of our faith, mental and vocal prayer, the presence of God, Confession, daily examination of conscience, frequent Communion and devotion to the Saints, especially the Blessed Virgin Mary. Volume 2 contains Hindrances in the path to Christian perfection with the means to overcome them, which include the sense of touch, sense of taste, sense of sight, sense of hearing, sense of smell, the use of the tongue in speech, ill-regulated and unmortified passions, love of worldly goods and riches, love of worldly honor and glory, attacks of the devil and scruples. Volume 3 contains the Immediate Dispositions for Christian Perfection which are found through prudence, justice, fortitude and temperance. These are also found through the virtues of religion, devotion, obedience, patience, chastity, meekness and humility. Volume 4 contains the Essence of Christian Perfection, which comes from the three Theological Virtues of Faith, Hope and Charity. Charity is divided into love of God, conformity with His holy will and love of neighbor. This volume concludes with an index to the entire set of books.

I pray that the Lord will bless you as you sift through the issues of life.

Science And Faith

Faith And Wisdom In Science [Pdf/ePub] eBook

Science And Faith by William H. Chalker Book Summary:

In this introduction to religion and science, William Chalker outlines the nature of knowledge involved in claims about science and about religion and delineates a compatible relationship between these two fields of understanding. According to Chalker, both science and theology has its proper realm. While science and theology are different in several crucial respects, they are not incompatible. Science, he explains, is a human intellectual activity whose aim is to produce knowledge claims that will maximize utility. Theology, in contrast, is a human intellectual activity whose aim is to produce knowledge claims about ultimate purpose. The two areas of knowledge are grounded in two very basic and very different kinds of human needs. As such, through explaining the differences in the nature of truth claims in science and theology, Chalker hopes to dissolve the seemingly intractable conflict between scientific and theological ways of thinking. Written accessibly and engagingly, Science and Faith will be welcomed both by the general reader and by students in undergraduate and seminary classes.

The Hidden Face of God

Faith And Wisdom In Science [Pdf/ePub] eBook

The Hidden Face of God by Gerald L. Schroeder Book Summary:

Gerald Schroeder, an MIT-trained scientist who has worked in both physics and biology, has emerged in recent years as one of the most popular and accessible apostles for the melding of science and religion. He first reconciled science and faith as different perspectives on a single whole in The Science of God. Now, in The Hidden Face of God, Schroeder takes a bold step forward, to show that science, properly understood, provides positive reasons for faith. Recent research in biology, chemistry, physics, and neuroscience contains unmistakable hints about the ultimate nature of reality. Simply put, we now know not only that behind matter lies energy, but also that behind energy lies wisdom. Scientists have touched on this wisdom in the laboratory, and its implications are awesome. From the wisdom encoded in DNA and analyzed by information science, to the wisdom unveiled in the fantastic complexity of cellular life, to the wisdom inherent in human consciousness, The Hidden Face of God offers a tour of the best of modern science. Schroeder makes no attempt to "prove" the existence of God. Yet his interpretations of the work of his fellow scientists touch on life's ultimate mysteries. His wise observations on the organization of organic life, on the power of humans to make sense of their sensory inputs, and on the complexities of the code of DNA all show that life has a direction and purpose that cannot be explained in purely physical terms. Throughout, he addresses three great themes: the question of first causes (i.e., where do the laws of nature come from?); the inseparability of mind and matter; and the philosophical problem of design. To believe that a designer must have been involved, he reminds us, we need not insist on perfection or on our view of perfection in the design. The Hidden Face of God will open a world of science to religious believers, and it will cause skeptics to rethink some of their deepest beliefs.

Science and Wisdom by Jürgen Moltmann Book Summary:

Moltmann's new book offers a careful theological reading of our contemporary scientific worldview and directly addresses the related cultural dilemmas.Moltmann begins by analyzing the identification of science with the modern spirit and the religious assumptions that inform Western science. He affirms the positive side of scientific advancement, sees the present crisis clearly, and looks for wisdom that can guide our scientific and religious future.The heart of Moltmann's work is a theological understanding and assessment of contemporary cosmology. Core chapters look at creation as an open system, the self-emptying or kenosis of God in the history of the universe, eschatology, the problems of time and eternity, and the idea of God and space. In the final chapters he addresses specific questions in bioethics, historical conflicts between religion and science, and cosmology in a world religious context.

Science Facts in Bible Wisdom

Faith And Wisdom In Science [Pdf/ePub] eBook

Science Facts in Bible Wisdom by Harry W. Miller Book Summary:

Unlike most books attempting to reconcile the facts of science with the wisdom of the Holy Bible, Harry W. Millers book, Science Facts in Bible Wisdom, does not waste the readers time with long, convoluted arguments. Instead, it cuts right through to the substantive evidence to show that todays science is discovering increasingly the very truths that the Bibles wisdom has always contained, citing scientists and the Bible. The bottom line Truth concerning Reality, both for science and the Bible, is that it is not relative or divisive in nature, it is instead relational and unifying. Jesus Christ being the Keystone evidence of that Fact by the complementary, holistic nature of his mortal human yet divine Person. Thus, the Bible tells us, Since the creation of the world his [Gods] invisible nature, namely his eternal power and deity, has been clearly perceived in the things that have been made [most particularly in the Person of Jesus Christ, born of woman] (Romans 1:20). Science Facts in Bible Wisdom is in three parts. The first two focus on sciences and the Bibles correlative information concerning the creation of the universe, the human person and the emergence of the subjective consciousness with its two tracks of awareness. The third part focuses upon the more intimate aspects of personal or experiential knowledge such as prayer, miracles, and visions (including two of the authors own), as well as the documentation of near-death and out-of-body experiences by scientists of the International Association of Near-Death Studies (IANDS). Within the heart of each human being there resides a deep-seated, spiritual desire to know in both an intimate and substantive fashion that ultimate Source of their existence, most often referred to as God. Humanity is forever reaching out to that ultimate Source, very much as Adam is in Michelangelos classic Sistine Chapel painting, The Creation of Adam. The NASA photo appearing on the cover of Science Facts in Bible Wisdom, like Michelangelos famous painting, is evidence that even with todays secular culture humanity continues to pursue its innate, even if often subconscious, spiritual imperative to know its Creator, not just spiritually but in truth. Today, however, the search for credible, substantive evidence and that transcendental Truth, God, for which it speaks comes evermore frequently by way of the amazing, new empirical findings of science. Thus, on this books cover, in place of Adams arm reaching out to God, we see instead the space shuttles robot arm reaching out to the visible evidence of Gods invisible nature... the things that have been made (Rom. 1:20). As this book attempts to show, truth of any kind must always rest upon relevant evidence. But, it can not rest upon self-righteous ideologies nor the blind beliefs of the large assortment of locally popular human traditions (habits). Evidence and reason are always necessary, whether the evidence required and the truth being pursued are of a more visible, tangible kind, as at a crime scene, or if they are of a less visible or ethereal nature. In the latter case, the truth and that evidence which speaks for it must necessarily be articulated by means of an indirect, analogical or symbolic form of language. The only language which can, in effect, make known more clearly the particular nature of such mysterious, invisible truths by making them more concrete to the limited cognitive scope of the human mind. Such a language must be used by both science and religion. The symbolic form of language favored by science is one comprised of mathematical symbols. On the other hand, the language favored by religion, such as that used in the Holy Bible, must often take on a metaphorical or figurative form in order to make those spiritual things that can not now be seen more concrete to the human understa

On Cultivating Faith and Science

Faith And Wisdom In Science [Pdf/ePub] eBook

On Cultivating Faith and Science by Janez Juhant,Bojan Žalec Book Summary:

The ethical distress of the (post)modern world stimulates and directs us to reflect our ethical and cultural grounds. Man is a transcendent being. He cannot reach or put in order immediate goods he needs if he is not prepared to acknowledge the grounds of his person and develop the virtues of prudence, love, hope, faith, wisdom, justice, courage, temperance etc. These are ethical questions concerning different worldviews and cannot be solved only by scientific methods. Many people who in the past did not care for religion as such, now take seriously religious personal and societal aspects of humane life. The fundamental crucial questions of man are ethical questions. They are in various ways related or perplexed with the question of faith and of science.

Across the Secular Abyss

Faith And Wisdom In Science [Pdf/ePub] eBook

Across the Secular Abyss by William Sims Bainbridge Book Summary:

Across the Secular Abyss draws upon the best social-scientific evidence to understand profound religious changes occurring in advanced societies today, as previously separate fields of science converge, leaving progressively less room for faith. It finds that the positive functions of religion have been exaggerated, are declining, and are replaceable by benefits from new Transhumanist technologies; however, serious concerns are raised whether atheism is compatible with long-term survival of the human species, given falling birth rates.
