Item description for God, Faith, and the New Millennium: Christian Belief in an Age of Science by Keith Ward...

This is a wonderful book Sep 26, 2008
This is the sequel to Keith Ward's acclaimed God, Chance and Necessity, which was his response to Jacques Monod's classic Chance & Necessity. Ward is an Anglican priest and theologian who happens to be a key player in the religion & science dialogue. Here he deals with weighty scientific and theological issues in a way that is clear and accessible to those who lack expertise in either field. Some reviewers are upset with some of content like Chapter 12 "Breaking Out of Literalism." But really this is a great book dealing with a wide range of issues: the origin of time & space, biological evolution, Genesis creation accounts, theodicy, miracles, the Virginal conception, etc. Many evangelicals will be pleased by the content of this book, because Ward takes the view that God intervenes in all aspects of the world, including biological evolution. Those with more of a fundamentalist leaning won't be very happy with Ward's theory.
Excellent Book on Science and Religion Nov 30, 2002
A modern view of the Christian faith that respects the latest findings of science. Mr. Ward's book is a delight to read and is easily accessible read for the layman. I highly recommend to those with an open mind.
failed attempt Sep 20, 1999
Ward tries to reconcile materialism and Christianity--and fails. There are much better books on both sides. for the materialist side I would rather recommend Dawkins' The Blind Watchmaker or The selfish gene; Rushton's Race, Evolution and Behavior; Jared's The Real American Dilemma; Hawking's A Brief History of Time. This are all beter books from the materialist side. And for a book soundly reconciling Christianity with materialism, I like beter Duke's My Awakening.

Fantastic Jul 22, 1999
Nevermind what the other reviewer had to say. From what I can see, he is simply existing in the drowning world of biblical literalism, which anybody prepared to read this book must have the intellect to at least challenge. Reading what adherents to Dawkins' theories about atheism having been proved by science in such books as 'The Blind Watchmaker', it is extremely refreshing to know that even within the same university there is a professor with enough intellect to show that, if Dawkins thinks science disproves God's existence, then he is completely missing the point. Ward has come up with some of the most spectacular thought on the relation between science and religion that I have encountered; this is really necessary reading for any serious theologians. The only reservation I have about this bookcomes from my own personal differences of faith from Ward, who has somewhat more liberal views than myself. However, this is really no hinderance to the book; if anything, it has only made it more interesting for me to read. A truly great book.
