Religion has been the biggest divisive force in history. This book examines the irrational and harmful beliefs of religious people, which lead to religion becoming a destructive force. Religion can be and has been a force for good too. What are the aspects of religion that make it meaningful? Does God exist? The book details the scientific and philosophical arguments adduced for God’s existence and how valid they are. In the last section, we look at five luminaries of science who either had close encounters with religious establishments or had strong views on religion and God. We look at the lives of Copernicus, Galileo, Newton, Einstein and Hawking, not so much as scientists, but as human beings with their own kinks and idiosyncrasies. The author brings to this book his extensive knowledge of physics, philosophy, religion and the behavioural sciences.

Die letzten dreißig Jahre seines wissenschaftlichen Lebens verwandte Albert Einstein auf die Suche nach der Weltformel, die alle elementaren Naturkräfte in einer einzigen schlüssigen Theorie erklärt. Aber die Zeit war nicht reif für eine solche Entdeckung. Auch nicht, als Stephen Hawking 1988 Eine kurze Geschichte der Zeit veröffentlichte. Sein Welt-Bestseller hat jedoch die Suche nach der einen Theorie von allem populär gemacht wie kein anderes Buch. Jetzt überrascht uns Hawking mit der Nachricht, dass wir womöglich kurz davorstehen. In Der große Entwurf schlägt das Jahrhundert-Genie einen ungewöhnlichen Weg vor, wie sich die widerstreitenden Theorien über Relativität und Quantenphysik zusammenfügen lassen. Für Hawking wäre dann bewiesen, was er heute nur vermuten kann: dass sich das Universum selbst erschaffen hat. Im Lichte von 40 Jahren eigener Forschung und mit Blick auf die bahnbrechenden astronomischen Entdeckungen und theoretischen Durchbrüche der letzten Jahre präsentiert Der große Entwurf eine aufregend neue und provokative Theorie über den Ursprung und die Entwicklung des Universums. In seiner klaren, eleganten und bilderreichen Sprache unternimmt es Hawking gemeinsam mit Leonard Mlodinow, uns Antworten zu geben auf die ersten und letzten Fragen unserer Existenz.

God's Presence

A Contemporary Recapitulation of Early Christianity

Author: Frances Young

Publisher: Cambridge University Press

ISBN: 1107038375

Category: Bibles

In 2011, Frances Young delivered the Bampton Lectures in Oxford to great acclaim. She offered a systematic theology with contemporary coherence, by engaging in conversation with the fathers of the church - those who laid down the parameters of Christian theology and enshrined key concepts in the creeds - and exploring how their teachings can be applied today, despite the differences in our intellectual and ecclesial environments. This book results from a thorough rewriting of those lectures in which Young explores the key topics of Christian doctrine in a way that is neither simply dogmatic nor simply historical. She addresses the congruence of head and heart, through academic and spiritual engagement with God's gracious accommodation to human limitations. Christianity and biblical interpretation are discussed in depth, and the book covers key topics including Creation, anthropology, Christology, soteriology, spirituality, ecclesiology and Mariology, making it invaluable to those studying historical and constructive theology.

This book is written for ordinary people with enquiring and skeptical minds about the Christian God. The author defends the Christian faith (apologetics) by covering a wide spectrum of topics like the credibility and compatibility of the Bible with science, the Big Bang, evolution and the age of the earth. Christianity is an intellectual logical religion and you can believe in God the creator and also accept that God caused the Big Bang to happen, use evolution to create and although human beings may originate from the great apes they are unique and special once God made them into His image by putting his spiritual soul in them. The individual today gets more than ever bombarded with attacks on Christianity by prominent atheists, scientific discoveries, different religions and philosophies. The intellectual levels of individual’s increases all the time and as knowledge increases often so does more questions arise even for believing Christians like why is there so much pain and suffering in the world. Considering the limited time people have, this book attempt to save time for busy individuals who cannot take a book or two out on every topic that bothers them. Covering many controversial questions and arguments with counter arguments a strong case is being made that the arguments against the Christian God fail.

Think Christianly

Looking at the Intersection of Faith and Culture

Author: Jonathan Morrow

Publisher: Zondervan

ISBN: 0310586739

Think Christianly is about seizing the opportunities we have every day to speak the life Jesus offers into our culture. Tragically, many such opportunities pass us by unclaimed—either because we don’t notice them or we have not prepared ourselves to enter into them. And those around us seem to grow increasingly unwilling to hear anything the church has to say. Jonathan Morrow helps church leaders envision and implement ways for their congregations to “think Christianly” about contemporary questions and to speak in informed, engaging ways. Morrow explores many of the important issues that Christians often hear raised with regard to faith—questions about who Jesus was, the good and bad of religion, pain and evil in the world, the reliability of the Bible, sexuality and intimate relationships, and hope for change, among others. The life and faith issues that Think Christianly addresses lead to cultural moments where Christianity and contemporary culture intersect. This book will help churches take vital steps toward cultivating compassion and competence in speaking faithfully to a questioning world.

Ein Plädoyer für die Existenz Gottes! Der "Neue Atheismus" ist in Europa auf dem Vormarsch, selbstbewusster und kämpferischer denn je. Die Argumente gegen die Existenz Gottes sind aber längst nicht zwingend. Der bekannte Mathematikprofessor John Lennox nimmt den Ball auf. Engagiert und lebendig in der Sprache, brillant in der Gedankenführung, weist er nach, dass die Argumente der prominenten Vertreter der Neuen Atheisten sehr begrenzt sind: logisch nicht stichhaltig, wissenschaftlich nicht sauber genug.

Postsecularism

The Hidden Challenge to Extremism

Author: Mike King

Publisher: James Clarke

ISBN: N.A

Category: Religion

Page: 279

View: 4601

Spirituality in the post-9/11 world is a complex topic. The detente between secular culture and religious faith that characterised the 20th century, the 'mutual ignorance pact,' has been shattered. From the rise of Islamic extremism to the American Christian Right to the fiercely anti-religious writings of staunch atheists such as Richard Dawkins, the controversy over what role the spiritual can or should play in our lives, public and private, has never been more widely discussed or hotly contended. In Postsecularism , Mike King posits that out of this conflict between socially dominant secular thinkers and the 'new defenders of faith' is arising a distinct way of thinking that is neither a return to pre-Enlightenment beliefs nor a continued hegemony of the secular - the postsecular. At once a retention of secular critical attitudes and a return in all seriousness to questions of the spirit, the postsecular provides a framework within which to move beyond the extremism of faithful and atheists alike. Drawing on contemporary thinkers from across the spiritual spectrum including Dawkins, Antony Flew, Christopher Hitchens, Alister McGrath, Daniel Dennett, Keith Ward, Richard Swinburne and Martin Amis, King carefully constructs a new mode of thought and explores its relevance to everything from physics to the arts, postmodernism, and feminism. What emerges is a thoughtful and persuasive discussion of the route to reconciliation between the combative worlds of the religious and the secular.

Need to Know

Vocation as the Heart of Christian Epistemology

Author: John G. Stackhouse Jr.

Publisher: Oxford University Press

Page: 320

How should a Christian think? If a serious Christian wants to think seriously about a serious subject--from considering how to vote in the next election to choosing a career; from deciding among scientific theories to selecting a mate; from weighing competing marketing proposals to discerning the best fitness plan--what does he or she do? This basic question is at the heart of a complex discourse: epistemology. A bold new statement of Christian epistemology, Need to Know presents a comprehensive, coherent, and clear model of responsible Christian thinking. Grounded in the best of the Christian theological tradition while being attentive to a surprising range of thinkers in the history of philosophy, natural science, social science, and culture, the book offers a scheme for drawing together experience, tradition, scholarship, art, and the Bible into a practical yet theoretically profound system of thinking about thinking. John Stackhouse's fundamental idea is as simple as it is startling: Since God calls human beings to do certain things in the world, God can be relied upon to supply the knowledge necessary for human beings to do those things. The classic Christian concept of vocation, then, supplies both the impetus and the assurance that faithful Christians can trust God to guide their thinking--on a "need to know" basis.
