Science and the Search for God

Science and the Search for God Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Harvard-educated theologian Gary Kowalski argues that many of the ills of the modern world — from the rise of fundamentalist intolerance to secular society's endless (and empty) search for thrills — stem from the mistaken view that science and faith are antagonists rather than natural allies. Both science and faith, the author suggests, compel us now to move beyond materialism toward an understanding of the world that includes the realities of consciousness and spirit. In the twenty-first century, human beings have less reason than before to feel they hold a privileged or special position in the cosmos, but more cause than ever to feel connected and akin to all that is. Christians and Jews, skeptics and seekers alike will find that this brief, persuasively written volume sheds new light on the old questions, Who are we? Where do we figure in the larger scheme of things? And what can we honestly believe?

Table of Contents

Healing the blind, curing the lame — Tell me why — Star dust — All is forgiven, Galileo — A brief history of stuff — Gaia and the Great Mother — After Darwin — A passionate epistemology — God is a verb — Elephants all the way down — The future of faith.
