God after Darwin : a theology of evolution by John F Haught( Book )

32 editions published between 1999 and 2018 in 3 languages and held by 1,368 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"In God After Darwin, John F. Haught argues that the ongoing debate between Darwinian evolutionists and Christian apologists is fundamentally misdirected: Both sides persist in focusing on an explanation of underlying design and order in the universe. Haught suggests that what is lacking in both of these competing ideologies is the notion of novelty, a necessary component of evolution and the essence of the unfolding of divine mystery. He argues that Darwin's disturbing picture of life, instead of being hostile to religion - as scientific skeptics and many believers have thought it to be - actually provides a most fertile setting for mature reflection on the idea of God."--Jacket

Is nature enough? : meaning and truth in the age of science by John F Haught( Book )

17 editions published between 2006 and 2007 in English and held by 637 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Is nature all there is? John Haught examines this question and in doing so addresses a fundamental issue in the dialogue of science with religion. The belief that nature is all there is and that no overall purpose exists in the universe is known broadly as 'naturalism'. Naturalism, in this context, denies the existence of any realities distinct from the natural world and human culture. Since the rise of science in the modern world has had so much influence on naturalism's intellectual acceptance, the author focuses on 'scientific' naturalism and the way in which its defenders are now attempting to put a distance between contemporary thought and humanity's religious traditions. Haught seeks to provide a reasonable, scientifically informed alternative to naturalism. His approach will provide the basis for lively discussion among students, scholars, scientists, theologians and intellectually curious people in general
Science and religion : from conflict to conversation by John F Haught( Book )

11 editions published between 1995 and 2004 in English and Indonesian and held by 550 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Has science made religion intellectually implausible? Does it rule out the existence of a personal God? In an age of science can we really believe that the universe has a "purpose"? And, finally, doesn't religion hold much of the blame for the present ecological crisis?" "These questions form the nucleus of today's debate between science and religion. This book is a guide for that debate, identifying the questions, isolating the issues and pointing to ways the questions can be resolved." "There are four possible ways, says John F. Haught, that we can view the relationship between religion and science. First, they can stand in complete opposition - the conflict position. Or, we can believe they are so different that conflict is impossible - the contrast position. A third approach holds that while science and religion are distinct, each has important implications for the other. A fourth way views them as different but mutually supportive."--Jacket

The promise of nature : ecology and cosmic purpose by John F Haught( Book )

4 editions published between 1993 and 2004 in English and held by 308 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The ecological crisis faced by our planet may have the effect of transforming religious ideas. Religions were born and took their distinctive shapes by the need of people to find harmony in their internal and external worlds. In our day that harmony is being challenged by a breakdown in the relationship between human beings and their global environment. Do the religious views held by most believers today provide an adequate basis for interacting with nature? Theologian John Haught believes they do not. Nor, he says, do stereotyped religious attitudes about the natural world enable believers to dialogue with physical scientists, many of whom are nonbelievers. To make the dialogue work we need a common language about nature and how it works. Haught maintains that process language will not only assist the ecological dialogue but help to transform religion itself. Nature is "holy" not because it originated at the hand of a creator or because it transparently reveals God now. It is holy primarily because of its direction: it is promise. This "future dimension" of nature lets us deal intelligently with the present crisis without forsaking the mysterious power that nature has for us. -- Back cover

The new cosmic story : inside our awakening universe by John F Haught( Book )

5 editions published in 2017 in English and held by 230 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

A foremost thinker on science and religion argues that an adequate understanding of cosmic history requires attention to the emergence of interiority, including religious aspiration. Over the past two centuries scientific advances have made it clear that the universe is a story still unfolding. In this thought-provoking book, John F. Haught considers the deeper implications of this discovery. He contends that many others who have written books on life and the universe--including Stephen Hawking, Stephen Jay Gould, and Richard Dawkins--have overlooked a crucial aspect of cosmic history: the drama of life's awakening to interiority and religious awareness. Science may illuminate the outside story of the universe, but a full telling of the cosmic story cannot ignore the inside development that interiority represents. Haught addresses two primary questions: what does the arrival of religion tell us about the universe, and what does our understanding of the cosmos as an unfinished drama tell us about religion? The history of religion may be ambiguous and sometimes even barbarous, he asserts, but its role in the story of cosmic emergence and awakening must be taken into account
Nature and purpose by John F Haught( Book )

Mystery and promise : a theology of revelation by John F Haught( Book )

5 editions published in 1993 in English and held by 190 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The idea of revelation is grounded in faith's conviction that through the word of God, manifested decisively in Christ, we encounter a promising and self-emptying mystery. Encouraged by the developments of Vatican II and contemporary theology, this book argues that revelation comes in the form of a divine promise which upon reflection turns out to be nothing less than God's own self-donation to the world. Viewed from another perspective, revelation is th gift of an image of divine humility which renders reality intelligible in an unprecedented way. This image, presented explicitly in the crucifixion of Jesus, illuminates the mystery that surrounds us, the cosmos out of which we have evolved, the tortuous history of humanity, and the ambiguities of personal existence
