Description
This new edition of acclaimed essays explores sea changes in the relationship between religion and science over the course of Western culture and suggests possible breakthroughs toward reaching an enlightened consciousness. Dr. Smith distinguishes between the "traditional" worldview that placed God at the center of the universe; the "modern" scientific view that recognized only objective reality; and the "postmodern" view that doubts the universe makes sense at all. His inspired last chapters draw on the most advanced scientific techniques to affirm the ultimate truths of love, the human soul, and the Divine. A new epilogue describes the twelve frontiers of the author's own life journey.
