New Proofs for the Existence of God: Contributions of Contemporary Physics and Philosophy by theologian Robert Spitzer adopts a new tone however. he spends less time directly addressing apologetic concerns and instead lays out the evidence for a creator that Physics has uncovered and then synthesizes these findings with classical Christian proofs of God and the discoveries of modern philosophy; a discipline that is making its own remarkable shift towards theism.
In this intellectually stimulating and challenging book, Spitzer examines these advances while outlining how they complement traditional rational arguments (e.g. Anselm) for the existence of God. In the process Spitzer responds to more recent arguments for atheism, but his primary project is not apologetic; rather it is deductive, descriptive, and informative. This allows him the space to make positive and creative arguments within the traditional theistic proofs offered by the historic Christian church that are informed by the most recent advancements in physics and philosophy.
Spitzer synthesizes an enormous amount of data on the big bang, string theory, quantum cosmology, post-relativistic considerations of time, and so on, to explain why the God hypothesis is so convincing, especially when modern physics is combined with theistic arguments. In doing so Spitzer, a natural polymath, accesses a wide diversity of areas, including theology, physics, metaphysics, ethics, and more in this book to provide the most contemporary, complete, and integrated approach to rational theism.

Joseph W. Koterski, S.J.
"A most original and insightful case for the existence of God. . . . Fr. Spitzer's new proofs pose a serious and compelling challenge to the unconscious hegemony of naturalism in the worlds of both philosophy and the sciences."
Francis J. Beckwith
"Rare is the theologian who keeps abreast of the latest developments in fundamental physics, and even rarer the one who can discuss them with the theological and philosophical sophistication that Fr. Spitzer displays in this book. A challenging and original work."
Stephen M. Barr

Quite a comprehensive treatment of how current Science "indicates" that God exists. It doesn't leave much room for Atheists in the scientific community. Ironically, I found the scientific section more facinating than the Philosophy. (I have studied Political, Religious, and Educational Philosophy.) Well worth a read; it may require a second reading for non-Science folk.
