Item Description...
Overview
In many ways human advance and even survival depend on the harmonization of our religious and scientific instincts, instincts that have diverged drastically in modern times. The End of Certainty and the Beginning of Faith portrays a vision for uniting the aims of science and Christian faith by examining the retreat from certainty that characterizes contemporary science and philosophy. Science in the 20th century is beginning to realize, through a retreat from claims of certainty, its affinity with the heart of faith. Drawing on the thought of American philosopher Charles Sanders Peirce, D. Brian Austin charts a course for this harmonization into the fuzzy but astoundingly fruitful future. This chancy, creative, and open worldview, assembling itself piecemeal from advances in the specialized sciences, is deeply congenial to a robust Christian faith. For this universe is not one of foregone conclusions, but a world of inexorable uncertainty, pervasive randomness, and real risk that calls for real commitment. Austin describes the broad philosophical and scientific reasons behind the growth of this newly prevalent worldview and suggests reasons why it promises to make allies of religion and science

Reviews - What do our customers think?
Science vs. Faith?  May 29, 2000
The author Dr. Austin pulls together many resources like philosophers Immanuel Kant,Martin Heidigger and the teachings of the Bible as well as lessons in physics to show many different thought patterns and was of looking at the same phemonenon. It fairly easy to ready, but it helps ifyou have a basic understanding of philosphy and religion. Dr. Austin pulls all of these elements together to prove that science and faith are not mutually exclusive and somewhat necessarily bound together. I think the author is try to prove you can have faith and still beleive in science and also that you can use science and still have faith. One does not excldue the other.
