From the cover: “In this book, John Weaver works out his belief that modern discoveries in science, especially in cosmology and geology, have given new life to the old arguments for design and purpose in the universe. While not proving the existence of God, such features as the ‘fine tuning’ of the origin of the universe, the ‘Anthropic Principle’, and the non-computable nature of the human mind show the reasonableness of belief in a Creator God. They also prompt theological reflection on the nature of God, opening up a vision of a God who is deeply involved in his creation, guiding the development of life from within and suffering with its pains. The author thus ventures, in a bold way, to integrate science and faith while not ignoring the difference between them. He offers the reader a very accessible introduction to the most recent scientific research, encouragement to communicate Christian truth to those outside the Church, and help with preaching from Genesis I.”
