Religion and revelation : a theology of revelation in the world's religions by Keith Ward( Book )

17 editions published between 1994 and 2003 in English and Undetermined and held by 645 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"The idea of revelation has played a fundamental role in the history of religion. This book provides a new and detailed investigation of the concept, examining its nature, sources, and limits in five of the major scriptural religions of the world: Christianity, Judaism, Islam, Hinduism, and Buddhism." "The first part of the book discusses the nature of theology, and expounds a comparative method as the most useful and appropriate for the modern age. Part Two focuses on the nature of religion and its early historical manifestations, whilst the third part of the book goes on to consider the idea of revelation as found in the great canonical religions of the world. Part Four develops the distinctively Christian idea of revelation as divine self-expression in history. The final part of the book discusses how far the idea of revelation must be revised or adapted in the light of modern historical and scientific thought, and proposes a new and positive theology of revelation for the future. The book includes discussions of the work of most major theologians and scholars in the study of religion - Aquinas, Tillich, Barth, Temple, Frazer, and Evans Pritchard - and should be of interest to scholars and students of comparative religion, philosophers of religion and theologians, and anthropologists."--Jacket

God, chance & necessity by Keith Ward( Book )

26 editions published between 1996 and 2007 in English and Dutch and held by 625 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The 'new materialism' argues that science and religious belief are incompatible. This book considers such arguments from cosmology (Stephen Hawking, Peter Atkins), from biology (Charles Darwin, Richard Dawkins) and from sociobiology (Michael Ruse), and exposes a number of fallacies and weaknesses. With a carefully argued, point-by-point refutation of scientific atheism, God, Chance and Necessity shows that modern scientific knowledge does not undermine belief in God, but actually points to the existence of God as the best explanation of how things are the way they are. Thus it sets out to demolish the claims of books like The Selfish Gene, and to show that the overwhelming appearance of design in nature is not deceptive

Why there almost certainly is a God : doubting Dawkins by Keith Ward( Book )

11 editions published between 2008 and 2009 in English and Undetermined and held by 146 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"One of Britain's leading philosopher--theologians, Keith Ward is at home in the world of philosophy: a world of clear definitins, sharp arguments and diverse conclusions. By contrast, when Dawkins enters this world his passion tends to get the better of him: he descends into sterotyping, pastiche and mockery, no longer approaching things with his uusual seriousness and care. In this stimulating and thought-provking philosophical challenge, Ward demonstrates not only how Dawkins' arguments are flawed, but also that a perfectly rational case can be made that there is, almost certainly, a God."--Back cover

The God conclusion : God and the Western philosophical tradition by Keith Ward( Book )

11 editions published between 2009 and 2010 in English and held by 59 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Discover why: ... Plato was not a world-hating totalitarian ... Aquinas's Five Ways are not so bad after all ... Kicking stones cannot refute Bishop Berkeley ... Schopenhauer was not quite an atheist ... and other refreshing new perspectives on spiritual thinking in western philosophy. This entertaining book posits the theory that philosophy, far from being the enemy of religion, has more often than not supported a non-materialist view of the universe. Keith Ward re-examines the works of western philosophy's greatest thinkers - from Plato and Aquinas to Kant and Hegel - and suggests that the majority accepted 'the God conclusion': that there is a supreme spiritual reality which is the cause or underlying nature of the physical cosmos
