I recently read New Proofs for the Existence of God: Contributions of Contemporary Physics and Philosophy by Fr. Robert J. Spitzer S.J. This was on my “to read” list and I bumped it up up after reading “Paul Cat”‘s review of it on his blog Alive and Young. He provide a good in depth review and after reading the book myself I would concur totally with his review.
I must admit the book made my brain hurt at times, made it hurt in a good way. As a lifetime lover of the sciences especially physics it was a very intriguing read as he discussed Big Bang cosmology, Universal constants, etc as these realities also intersect theology and philosophy. His explanations were very thorough and areas I was already aware of were made clearer by what he had to write. Philosophical concepts in regards to God were also made much clearer to me as the book progressed and I really learned a lot from this book. His teaching method includes repeating phrases over and over and I found that what he had to write really stuck with me. A week after reading the book so much of it remains remains accessible to me. Not an easy read, but a worthwhile one.
Regardless, just read Paul’s review.
