Publisher's Description

Against a backdrop of unprecedented turbulence and political friction in religious affairs, Deductive Theology constructs a reasoned basis for Christianity that is capable of enduring the worst assaults of those who would prefer to believe that Christians are unreasonable. It invites scientific scrutiny and rises above the scandals and deceit that are unavoidable defects of human religious institutions. Myers is not a professional theologian, but a scientist and engineer, thus the sure grasp of logic at work in this book. Deductive Theology reclaims for us a Christianity of rationality that is accessible to all through an objective evaluation of the human predicament. The scientific thought process applied to theology forces some concessions on a few traditional teachings, yet it eventually shines a refreshing new light that supports the crucial aspects of theology derived from scripture. The book presents us with a sound recapitulation of the traditional Christian notion of a loving God desiring companionship with humanity, while at the same time providing compelling (and amusing) arguments that expose the absurdity of alternative spirituality and "New Age" diversions from Christianity. Those attracted to these alternatives might find it difficult to accept the key message of this book-that man's spiritual imperative is based on surrender as opposed to empowerment. Steering a careful course between the relativism of the Left and the fundamentalism of the right, the author, to his credit, does not spare institutional Christianity a tongue lashing for its errors. Myers' approach is based on an appeal to rationality, yet-like Christ cleansing the temple-he is not without moments ofpassion and indignation. Most important, he commands a healthy sense of humor that is indispensable in attacking such weighty subject matter.
