Groundbreaking, ingenious and devastatingly clear, Keith Ward's Pascal's Fire is guaranteed to reignite the timeless dispute of whether scientific advancement threatens religious belief. Turning the conventional debate on its head, Ward suggests that the existence of God is actually the best starting-point for a number of the most famous scientific positions.

From quantum physics to evolution, the suggestion of an 'ultimate mind' adds a new dimension to scientific thought, enhancing rather than detracting from its greatest achievements. Also responding to potential criticisms that his ultimate mind is unrecognisable as the God of Abraham, Ward examines our most fundamental beliefs in a new light. Emerging with a conception of God that is consistent with both science and the world's major faiths, this ambitious project will fascinate believers and sceptics alike.

Young Earth verses Old Earth. The debate has gone on for centuries, with most modern Christians disputing the scientific claim of an ancient earth. But is an old earth truly inconsistent with Scripture? Dr. Mark Whorton seeks to give biblically based answers and challenge the modern thinking that to be an evangelical Christian is to believe in a young earth.Using evidence as diverse as the bombardier beetle and St. Augustine, Dr. Whorton, a Christian apologist and genuine rocket scientist, provides a compelling answer to one of the most difficult and heated issues for modern Christians.

Perfect as a textbook yet excellent for lay readers, this updated edition builds a positive case for Christianity by applying the latest thought to core theological themes.

J. Gresham Machen once said, "False ideas are the greatest obstacles to the reception of the gospel"-which makes apologetics that much more important. Wanting to engage not just academics and pastors but Christian laypeople and seekers, William Lane Craig has revised and updated key sections in this third edition of his classic text to reflect the latest work in astrophysics, philosophy, probability calculus, the arguments for the existence of God, and Reformed epistemology.

His approach-that of positive apologetics-gives careful attention to crucial questions and concerns, including: the relationship of faith and reason, the existence of God, the problems of historical knowledge and miracles, the personal claims of Christ, and the historicity of the resurrection of Jesus. He shows that there is good reason to think Christianity is true. As Craig says, "If you have a sound and persuasive case for Christianity, you don't have to become an expert in comparative religions and Christian cults. A positive justification of the Christian faith automatically overwhelms all competing world views lacking an equally strong case."

From the worldwide phenomenon of The Da Vinci Code to the national best-seller Misquoting Jesus, popular culture is being bombarded with radical skepticism about the uniqueness of Christ and the reliability of the New Testament. Reinventing Jesus cuts through the rhetoric of extreme doubt expressed by these and several other contemporary voices to reveal the profound credibility of historic Christianity. Meticulously researched, thoroughly documented, yet eminently readable, this book invites a wide audience to take a firsthand look at the solid, reasonable, and clearly defensible evidence for Christianity's origins. Reinventing Jesus shows believers that it's okay to think hard about Christianity, and shows hard thinkers that it's okay to believe.

Increasingly, Western culture embraces confusion as a virtue and decries certainty as a sin. Those who are confused about sexuality and identity are viewed as heroes. Those who are confused about morality are progressive pioneers. Those who are confused about spirituality are praised as tolerant. Conversely, those who express certainty about any of these issues are seen as bigoted, oppressive, arrogant, or intolerant.

This cultural phenomenon led the compilers of the Oxford English Dictionary to name "post-truth" their word of the year in 2016. How can Christians offer truth and clarity to a world that shuns both?

By accurately describing the Culture of Confusion and how it has affected our society, author Abdu Murray seeks to awaken Westerners to the plight we find ourselves in. He also challenges Christians to consider how they have played a part in fostering the Culture of Confusion through bad arguments, unwise labeling, and emotional attacks.

Ultimately, Saving Truth provides arguments from a Christian perspective for the foundations of truth and how those foundations apply to sexuality, identity, morality, and spirituality. For those enmeshed in the culture of confusion, the book offers a way to untangle oneself and find hope in the clarity that Christ offers.

SCIENTIFIC THEOLOGY NATURE V1 REVISED

Sale 20% off

New in paperback of the first volume of McGrath's groundbreaking three volume work of Systematic Theology, "A Scientific Theology." Written by one of world's best-known theologians, these volumes together represent the most extended and systematic exploration of the relation beween Christian theology and the natural sciences yet produced. Thoroughly ecumenical, this will be a significant work for Catholic, Orthodox, Protestant and evangelical readers. The work is marked throughout by a sustained and critical engagment with the history and philosophy of the natural sciences, and a passionate commitment to the legitimacy of theology as an academic discipline.

"Nature" sets out a vision for a "scientific theology," in which the working assumptions of the natural sciences are critically appropriated as a theological resource. It then moves on to deal at considerable length with the crucially important question of the status of nature, which ahs rearely been given the serious considertion that it deserves. Responding sympathetically to the growing consensus that "nature" is a socially mediated concept, McGrath sets out an approach to nature that establishes it as a theologically legitamate notion, and explores its positive and constructive role within a scientific theology.

This second volume in the series provides a detailed and thorough examination and defense of theological realism. Engaging critically with writers such as George Lindbeck and John Millbank, McGrath offers a sparkling and sophisticated affirmation of theological realism against its modern and postmodern critics. His refutation of the claim that the rise of philosophical nonfoundationalism entails the abandoning of any form of realism is of particular importance, as is his application of the highly influential form of 'critical realism' developed by Roy Bhaskar. Scientific Theology is a groundbreaking work of systematic theology in three volumes: Nature, Reality and Theory. Now available as a three volume set.

The average person today may hold to a wide variety of beliefs about religion and Christianity, including:

  • Good people go to heaven; bad people end up in hell.
  • All religions are basically the same.
  • It's about rules.
  • It's about controlling people.
  • No religion can be the only way to God or spirituality.
  • In short, religion is an area of much confusion. The Searching for God Study Guide by Holly Lazzaro, a companion to the Searching for God Video Study featuring a number of top Christian thinkers and apologists, leads participants into exploring questions such as: What is Christianity? What are some of the ideas that have influenced the way people think about it? Is there any evidence for God?

    Most significantly, the Searching for God Study Guide examines the central event in the Christian story, the resurrection of Jesus Christ. The resurrection is a historical claim, testable by evidence. So how credible is it? Lazzaro leads participants into reflecting more deeply on the insights provided in the video study by scholars such as Lee Strobel, William Lane Craig, Gary Habermas, J. Warner Wallace, Nabeel Qureshi, Paul Copan, and many more.

    Why is justice fair? Why do we crave relationships? Why are so many people pursuing spirituality? For two thousand years Christianity has claimed to answer these mysteries, and in Simply Christian, renowned biblical scholar and Anglican bishop N. T. Wright demonstrates that it still does so today.

    Like C. S. Lewis in his classic Mere Christianity, Wright makes the case for Christian faith from the ground up, assuming that the reader has no predisposition to and perhaps even some negativity toward religion in general and Christianity in particular. Simply Christian serves as a straightforward introduction for those unfamiliar with the faith, and a source of thoughtful, accessible scholarship for everyone.

    N. T. Wright is Bishop of Durham for the Church of England. He is one of today's leading theologians and author of Jesus and the Victory of God, which is widely regarded as one of the most significant studies in the contemporary "Third Quest" of the historical Jesus. He taught New Testament studies for twenty years at Cambridge, McGill and Oxford Universities. Among his many published works are The Challenge of Jesus, The Meaning of Jesus (co-authored with Marcus Borg), and What Saint Paul Really Said.

    "Fresh, engaging, and highly readable, Tom Wright has the gift of being both profound and as simple as needs be. Simply Christian lives up to its title -- an invaluable guide for seekers and doubters as well as believers."

    - Os Guinness, author of Unspeakable: Facing Up to the Challenge of Faith--Dallas Willard, professor of philosophy, University of Southern California, and author of The Divine Conspiracy

    'Present day conditions', writes the author, 'call loudly for a new examination and new presentation of God's omnipotence, God's sufficiency, God's sovereignty. From every pulpit in the land it needs to be thundered forth that God still lives, that God stil observes, that God still reigns. Faith is now in the crucible; it is being tested by fire, and there is no fixed and sufficient resting-place for the heart and mind but in the throne of God. What is needed now, as never before, is a full, positive, constructive setting forth of the Godhood of God.'
