A Scientific Kingdom of God
About the Book
America is in a multi-cultural crisis. We are straying from our God given roots. We have seen the consequences building for eight years. In horror, the rural roots and working-class America recoiled, and as a consequence, God gave us a working-class billionaire, and here we are. What shall we do? We need to return to the strong times of America’s beginning. Our evolutionary roots are fundamentally religious. We want a religion of the heart, a religion where the Spirit of God walks with us, and he talks with us, and he tells us we’re not alone because he lives in and with us. What might that be like to walk with the Spirit, with nature, and nature’s God? Today this is the new/old theology of science and the reality that we all have believed in, the hidden God/reality in whom we live and move and have our being. You can follow science all the way into the reality that we know only partially from our traditions and need to know again in our hearts. This book does what no other book does; it begins with the science of evolution of the universe, life, humans and brains, including some information about our quantum brain that supports quantum connections to the universe and the dimension of spirit. It then gives a brief up-to-date summary of modern biblical knowledge providing an “originalist” theological interpretation. It sets the stage for science with a brief history of how Christianity developed, how it then was undermined by its child, the now dominating science that has newly reached studies of consciousness - the edge of theology. This study is a brief unorthodox rethinking of the importance of religion in modern society, comparing theological translations of biblical history with a layman’s summary of the, theological significance of modern scientific knowledge in biology, quantum physics and cosmology, and pleads for a reconstruction of Christian doctrines and a re-birth of spirituality in everyday life as a cure for our modern chaos.
About the Author
From the no nonsense author of the practical Ecological Forestry series published in 1972 to counter the complexities of clearcutting, comes a new, practical “operational” theology of Science encompassing an ecological world view where God is present in your life, in your everyday Reality, as He/She is present in a natural ecological forest. Author Peter A Twight returns with a life changing vision, uncomplicated by mind-bending 3rd century Christian doctrines being forced into 21st century science. Instead he brings an operational scientific understanding into one of the most complex and meaningful areas of human existence.
