Item description for Christianity and Science: Toward a Theology of Nature (Theology in Global Perspective Series) by John F. Haught...
Overview "There is nothing in Christian faith that should make one afraid of science's widening and deepening knowledge. No matter how enormous the picture of the natural world turns out to be, it can never surpass the infinity we have always attributed to God." In his many previous books John Haught established a reputation as the leading Catholic theological voice in the study of science and religion. In this work he offers his most systematic theological reflections on the relation between Christian revelation and the unfolding story of the universe. In the face of recent discoveries some maintain their faith by clinging to a pre-scientific worldview; others conclude that perhaps "the universe has outgrown the biblical God who is said to be its creator." For Haught, however, exploration of the "three infinities"-the immense, the infinitesimal, and the complex-serves as invitation to an unprecedented appreciation for the grandeur of God, creation, Christ, and redemption.

The God Who Invites Dec 1, 2007
This is a book for anyone whose faith has not been as stunted by formal religious education as it would have been by cynical rationalism. It rests on the conviction that the fundamental "stuff" of the universe is not inert matter, nor is evolution a history of endless deaths. What enlivens the universe, quickens growth and thought, is the restless Spirit of God, humbly emptying himself unendingly. What a jolt of life this book is!
