Responding to contemporary popular atheism, Robert J. Spitzer's New Proofs for the Existence of God examines the considerable evidence for God and creation that has come to light from physics and philosophy during the last forty years. An expert in diverse areas, including theology, physics, metaphysics, and ethics, Spitzer offers in this text the most contemporary, complete, and integrated approach to rational theism currently available. "Skepticism about the possibility of proving the existence of God often relies on data from modern science. In this splendid new book Father Robert Spitzer explores the implications of the latest discoveries in big bang cosmology, string theory, quantum physics, and the ontology of time to craft a series of convincing philosophical arguments. To paraphrase a popular commercial, this is not your father's old 'natural theology' textbook ù it's a gripping and compelling account of the best current arguments for theism."ùJoseph W. Koterski, S.J., Foidham University "A most original and insightful case for the existence of God.... Fr. Spitzer's new proofs pose a serious and compelling challenge to the unconscious hegemony of naturalism in the worlds of both philosophy and the sciences."ùFrancis J. Beckwith, Baylor University "Rare is the theologian who keeps abreast of the latest developments in fundamental physics, and even rarer the one who can discuss them with the theological and philosophical sophistication that Fr. Spitzer displays in this book. A challenging and original work."ùStephen M. Barr, University of Delaware, author of Modern Physics and Ancient Faith

In Search of God

God and Religious Scriptures: Seeking Proof of Divine Revelation

The author shares his personal journey while investigating religious scriptures for evidence to support the presence of Divine Revelation. The first section of the book begins with discussions supporting the existence of God and refuting Darwin; yet also arguing for the co-existence of evolution and creation. Subsequently, in the second section of the book, the author examines the Koranic claim that the advent of the prophet Muhammad is foretold in the Torah and the Gospel (Koran 7:157). The author traces this claim, beginning with Ishmael, the father of the Arabs, whose Hebrew name means God Hears . The Bible foretells that Ishmael's descendents would have a Great Nation (Genesis 17:20, KJV). In fulfillment of this promise Ishmael's sons Kedar and Tema (Genesis 25:13-15) are part of Isaiah's prophetic vision, (Isaiah 21:11-17 and 42:1-11) as mentioned in the Old Testament's Book of Isaiah. In the third section of this book the difficult yet challenging controversy surrounding the identity of Jesus, a major point of contention between Judaism, Christianity and Islam, is examined. The fourth part of this book deals mainly with Koranic scientific facts that only became common knowledge with recent discoveries. Finally, this book closes by examining the spiritual essence and commonalities of the world's three major religions.

A Seeker, a Scientist, and the Stunning Answer to the World’s Oldest Question Ptolemy Tompkins, collaborator on the New York Times bestselling Proof of Heaven and Proof of Angels, is at his lowest point, personally and professionally, when he meets with an astrophysicist with a message for the world: God is real, and science proves it. Proof of God is the unlikely story of how this serious scientist and this broken writer, in a series of conversations stretching over several months, come to understand that the universe—from the smallest sub-atomic particles that make up everything in existence to the farthest reaches of the universe—bears evidence of a creator. In short, God not only exists, but science gives us tools to know this. Proof of God shows how science and religion both point to the same stunning and world-changing truth: God is real.

In Girl Trouble, acclaimed writer Holly Goddard Jones examines small-town Southerners aching to be good, even as they live in doubt about what goodness is. A high school basketball coach learns that his star player is pregnant--with his child. A lonely woman reflects on her failed marriage and the single act of violence, years buried, that brought about its destruction. In these eight beautifully written, achingly poignant, and occasionally heartbreaking stories, the fine line between right and wrong, good and bad, love and violence is walked over and over again. In "Good Girl," a depressed widower is forced to decide between the love of a good woman and the love of his own deeply flawed son. In another part of town and another time, thirteen-year-old Ellen, the central figure of "Theory of Realty," is discovering the menaces of being "at that age": too old for the dolls of her girlhood, too young to understand the weaknesses of the adults who surround her. The linked stories "Parts" and "Proof of God" offer distinct but equally correct versions of a brutal crime--one from the perspective of the victim's mother, one from the killer's. Written with extraordinary empathy and maturity, and with the breadth and complexity of a novel, Jones's stories shed light on the darkness of the human condition.

Five Proofs of the Existence of GodÊprovides a detailed, updated exposition and defense of five of the historically most important (but in recent years largely neglected) philosophical proofs of God's existence: the Aristotelian proof, the Neo-Platonic proof, the Augustinian proof, the Thomistic proof, and the Rationalist proof. Ê This book also offers a detailed treatment of each of the key divine attributes -- unity, simplicity, eternity, omnipotence, omniscience, perfect goodness, and so forth -- showing that they must be possessed by the God whose existence is demonstrated by the proofs.Ê Finally, it answers at length all of the objections that have been leveled against these proofs. Ê This book offers as ambitious and complete a defense of traditional natural theology as is currently in print.Ê Its aim is to vindicate the view of the greatest philosophers of the past -- thinkers like Aristotle, Plotinus, Augustine, Aquinas, Leibniz, and many others -- that the existence of God can be established with certainty by way of purely rational arguments.Ê It thereby serves as a refutation both of atheism and of the fideism which gives aid and comfort to atheism.

Only God can judge us, and it is by what is within us, not eternal things."

Proof of the Existence of God

An Evidentiary Truth Based on Science, Moral Values, and Philology

This book is a bridge between science and religion. For much of the ancient times until the eighteenth century, all our human issues and answers were based on religion. However, from the eighteenth century onward (even though it started from the second century and peaked a bit more during the thirteenth century), people questioned the authenticity of all the religious responses to all our human quest. For this reason, many scientists conducted scientific research to find out the evidentiary truth to the religious responses about the universe, origin of moral values, the existence of God, etc. This book is about the true origin of moral values and about the true existence of God. In this book, I seek to give objective, scientific, philological, and religious explanations as to the real existence of God. I also seek to explain who is the source of our moral values. In the final analysis, I do suggest in this book that science and religion are friends who are seeking and seeing the same thing from different perspectives. Therefore, they proclaim their findings with different names, which are generally of similar philological meaning. I also suggest that with the present lack of objective evidentiary proof, God cannot be said to exist anthropomorphically but truly exists pneumatologically, and he is the creator of our existence and the source of our moral values.

Are Christians Guilty of Blind Faith, or Is The Bible Really God's Inspired Word? Can You Ever Know For Sure? Join best-selling author Hank Hanegraaff for a stirring defense of the Bible as the Word of God and your only reliable foundation for life. In answering the riveting question, “Has God spoken?”, Hanegraaff uses manuscript evidence, archeology, predictive prophecy, and much more to memorably demonstrate that the Bible is divine rather than merely human in origin. Hanegraaff demolishes modern objections to Scripture, such as: There are more mistakes in manuscript copies of the Bible than there are words in the New Testament. The biblical account of King David is no more factual than tales of King Arthur—there simply is no evidence in archeology or history for Israel’s quintessential king. Contemporary prophets are proven 100 percent wrong, 100 percent of the time, and biblical prophets are just as unreliable. Has God Spoken? joins its predecessors—The Face That Demonstrates the Farce of Evolution and Resurrection—as Hanegraaff’s final book in a trilogy that provides complete and compelling answers to the most critical issues facing Christians today.

Anna Rosario should not be here. Three times she died and left her body, only to return to the battle—broken and scarred but not defeated. At times it took heavy-duty miracles to keep her alive—Miracles of the Divine Kind. On other occasions, the miracles of modern medicine, combined with God’s grace, handled the crisis. But Anna’s story is also about the power of prayer that can lead to the little miracles, the Godwinks that can uplift our lives each and every day if only we learn to recognize them as Gifts from God. Despite the setbacks of a broken home, Anna was able to not only survive, but thrive finding both faith and blessing in spite of ongoing personal struggles. On the pages of Miracles, God’s Proof of Life, you’ll be able to walk a ways in Anna’s shoes and imagine not only surviving what she went through, but finding incredible strength, drive, faith, humanity, and resolve all made possible by a spirit supported by God's Love.
