Atheism by Etienne Borne( Book )

4 editions published between 1961 and 1962 in English and held by 4 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The author surveys the development and characteristics of modern atheism in its various forms from its origins, which he traces principally in Hegel through Marx and Nietzsche to Sartre. He shows how, in its modern form, atheism -- "an absolute denial of the Absolute"--Is frequently animated by a form of prophetic inspiration and how, in the case of Marxian dialiectical materialism, it can envisage matter in terms that are virtually metaphysical. He examines atheism in the light of St. Thomas's traditional refutations of its validity and also as one of the symptoms of what Romano Guardini has called "the end of the modern world."
Science and religion by Paul Chauchard( Book )

4 editions published in 1962 in English and held by 4 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

From the Renaissance on, there have been recurrent conflicts between science and religion, whether the science was the new astronomy of the seventeenth century or biological evolution in the nineteenth. The author here discusses the misunderstandings resulting from the misuse of science against religion, and equally unbalanced reactions found in atheistic agnosticism and Christian fideism. He proposes a reconciliation of science and religion, based on recognition of the immanence of God in the phenomenal world
The Old Testament Apocrypha by Catherine Dimier-Paupert( Book )

3 editions published in 1964 in English and French and held by 3 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

In the introductory section of this volume, the author presents a detailed but concise survey of the apocryphal works. She outlines how and why this type of literature developed, and shows its relation to the growth of the Judaeo-Christian tradition. A list of the most important apocrypha, with explanatory notes about their content and influence, concludes this complete introduction. The text continues with extracts from the writings themselves. Various accounts of creation, the conceptions of good and evil and the notions of the spirit world are all studied in depth. Legends of the Age of the Patriarchs and several other selections reflect the traits of the people of ancient Israel. The author devotes special attention to the pious sect of Jews who formed the Qumran community and who are responsible for the writings in the Dead Sea Scrolls. Interesting portions from the actual text of these scrolls provide illuminating insights into the daily life of this religious group. Through comments and evaluations, the author provides a significant link in the chain of religious history
