Astrophysics and Creation:Percieving the Universe Through Science and Participation

Product Description

For centuries the dialogue, and often the heated debate, between science and religion was dominated by the question of whether and how God might be experienced through the scientific study of nature. While scientists observe and explore the universe through widening knowledge, believers—awed by its splendor— enter into relationship, becoming participants in this cosmos.

In Astrophysics and Creation, renowned Christian and astrophysicist Arnold Bentz draws on personal experience, as well as biblical theology, to bring science and theology into a dialogue that will alter the way you see life. Bentz insists that human perception reaches further than science and demonstrates this in various examples, personal, biblical, and literary. Engaging stargazers from Isaac Newton and Pierre Simon Laplace to Walt Whitman and Immanuel Kant, along with the Christian gospels, Bentz brings into focus the varying perspectives forming the bases of science and theology and their relationship to one another. Bentz's illuminating argument not only claims that science and religion are reconcilable but also aims to show explicitly how they are compatible.

Editorial Reviews

"A sparkling gem lying in a vast field of books of science and religion. Reading it is a religious experience in itself." —Jesse Thomas, author, The Youniverse: The Spirit of the Twenty First Century

"Benz, an eminent scientist, describes brilliantly the wonders revealed by modern astronomy about the origin and structure of galaxies, stars and planets. But he also demonstrates with great clarity how other levels of reality lying in a different plane or dimension are an equally important part of human experience and a search for meaning." —Eric R. Priest FRSE FRS, prof. em., University of St Andrews, UK

"Scientific inquiry alone cannot answer theological questions. But it can pose them, and may even force them upon us. Arnold Benz is a scientist at the cutting edge of developments in astrophysics and astronomy in Europe and the United States. In this beautiful and at times deeply moving reflection he affirms the human quest for meaning, a quest that can never be satisfied solely within the boundaries of science, but requires our engagement and our awe in the presence of an amazing reality of which we are a part, and to which we belong." —Christopher Bryan, professor, New Testament University of the South, Sewanee; author, The Resurrection of the Messiah and Listening to the Bible
