Search for Meaning in Nature: A New Look at Creation / Ritland, Richard M / (PB/1970-1970/B+/USED)



*Condition Note: Mild over all wear.*


We are living in a nuclear age when science is both feared and trusted. The layman who sees scientific "impossibilities" happening all about him can hardly help developing a faith in the theories of science. The remarkable accomplishments of science often lend credibility to even the tenuous theories taught in its name. There is a common impression that, among other things, science has dispensed with the necessity of a Creator and that intelligence is on the side of unbelief.

Large numbers are dissatisfied with their present state of opinion and confused about what they should believe. For them life often seems to have lost its meaning and purpose and in their inmost being they feel a deep and sometimes inarticulate sense of despair. It is time to reexamine certain areas of science bearing on the basic questions of existence. The question of God and His relationship to the world confronts us today as never before.
