God, Faith and the New Millennium

God, Faith and the New Millennium

Author: Keith Ward Format: Paperback / softback Release Date: 02/04/1998

Does being a Christian in the modern scientific age require intellectual suicide? What future for Christianity in the Third Millennium? In God, Faith and the New Millennium Keith Ward has produced a powerful and upbeat study of Christian belief that tackles questions such as these head on. In what he describes as a summary of his life's work on Christianity, religion and science, Ward's new and positive interpretation presents a Christian faith in harmony with the scientific worldview while remaining true to its traditions. This is a cutting-edge study that will provoke and inspire every Christian and anyone interested in the debate on the role of faith in the modern world. Through his examination of key issues such as Creation, evolution and the divine purpose, Ward demonstrates that there is a 'natural fit' between the scientific worldview and mainstream Christian beliefs - Christian faith gives insight into the meaning and purpose of the universe, the physical structure of which modern science has marvellously discovered.

Concepts of God

Concepts of God

Author: Keith Ward Format: Paperback / softback Release Date: 01/04/1998

Is there a universal concept of God? Do all the great faiths of the world share a vision of the same supreme reality? In an attempt to answer these questions, Keith Ward considers the doctrine of an ultimate reality within five world religions - Hinduism, Buddhism, Islam, Judaism and Christianity. He studies closely the works of definitive, orthodox writers from each tradition - Sankara, Ramanuja, Asvaghosa, Maimonides, Al-Ghazzali and Aquinas - to build up a series of 'images' of God, a common core of belief. Ward discovers that while the great religious traditions of the world retain their differences, there are convergences of thought at the deepest level, with a broad similarity of structure in concepts of God. He concludes that a recognition of these beliefs, as well as encouraging a clearer acceptance of the mystery of the divine, might also lead to an increase in understanding and tolerance of other faiths, to the enrichment of one's own.

In Defence of the Soul

In Defence of the Soul

Author: Keith Ward Format: Paperback / softback Release Date: 01/04/1998

Denying the existence of the human soul has devastating effects on our valuation of human beings and human endeavour, maintains the author. He counters such denials, the result of the recent popularization of secular and materialist views of human development, with a detailed examination of philosophical, anthropological and scientific attacks on God and the reality of the human soul. Taking current scientific arguments back to their essentials, Professor Ward presents a convincing case. God is not dead - the watchmaker was never blind.

God, Chance and Necessity

God, Chance and Necessity

Author: Keith Ward Format: Paperback / softback Release Date: 26/09/1996

The so-called 'new materialism' argues that science and religious belief are incompatible. From Cosmology to Biology, its exponents have included such eminent names as Stephen Hawking, Richard Dawkins, Peter Atkins and Michael Ruse. With a carefully argued, point by point refutation of scientific atheism, God, Chance and Necessity shows that modern scientific knowledge does not undermine belief in God, but actually points to the existence of God as the best explanation of the way things are. Thus, it sets out to demolish the claims of books like The Selfish Gene, and to show that the overwhelming appearance of design in nature is not deceptive.
