Item description for The Search for God: Can Science Help? by John Theodore Houghton...

How did the world begin? Is there meaning and purpose in life? Or is existence a matter of chance and chaos? Since human beings first walked the earth, we have been a questioning race, driven by curiosity. For centuries, religion and science have been seen as rival explanations for the way the world is. Both in their different ways pursue questions of life and meaning. But are these two quests totally opposed? Or are they two facets of the human yearning to find out the truth about who we are and what our place in the universe can be? In the search for God--the ultimate source of purpose and meaning--can science help? In this book, adapted from the Oxford Templeton Lectures given in 1992, Sir John Houghton, a leading British scientist with a long involvement in space research, explores the overlap between the concerns of science and religion.

Reviews - What do customers think about The Search for God: Can Science Help??

Excellent book on science and faith  Oct 1, 2009
Sir John Houghton was formerly Professor of Atmospheric Physics at Oxford, Chief Executive at the British Meteorological Office and co-chair of the scientific assessment working group of the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC), which collectively won a Nobel Peace Prize. He is a committed Christian. In this book he deals with fundamental questions at the frontier between science and religion-philosophy including the origin of the universe, quantum theory, relativity theory, the nature and origin of life, and the relationship between mind and brain. These scientific subjects are linked to deep religious questions such as the existence and nature of God, the incarnation, whether prayers can be answered in a deterministic universe, and whether miracles are possible. I was particularly impressed by the precision of the writing. As a Christian academic myself, I am often frustrated by lack of rigour in books presenting the Christian faith, but I found this book to be impeccable.
