More than 4 weeks availability
Denying the existence of the human soul has devastating effects on our valuation of human beings and human endeavour, maintains the author. He counters such denials, the result of the recent popularization of secular and materialist views of human development, with a detailed examination of philosophical, anthropological and scientific attacks on God and the reality of the human soul. Taking current scientific arguments back to their essentials, Professor Ward presents a convincing case. God is not dead - the watchmaker was never blind.
Keith Ward is Regius Professor of Divinity at Oxford University and a Canon of Christ Church. Among his influential books are 'God,Chance and Necessity', his exploration of the compatibility of a Scientific worldview and the existence of a creator God, which was published to widespread critical acclaim in 1996. Also published by Oneoworld are Ward's 'God, Faith and the New Millennium.' and 'Concepts of God'.
The gospel of false freedom; the elimination of purpose from the universe; the reduction of morals to biology; the attack on conscience; the materialist denial of the soul; the attack on moral obligation; the soul and the brain; reason, religion and science.
