 Our Description

 

New Proofs for the Existence of God: Contributions of Contemporary Physics and Philosophy

 

Responding to contemporary popular atheism, Fr. 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.

Fr. Robert J. Spitzer, S.J., former president of Gonzaga University, is founder and president of the Magis Institute for Faith and Reason, Irvine, California, and host of a popular series on EWTN. His books include Healing the Culture, The Spirit of Leadership, and Five Pillars of the Spiritual Life.

Reviews -

Joseph W. Koterski, S.J.
— Fordham University
"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 — this is a gripping and compelling account of the best current arguments for theism."

Francis J. Beckwith
— Baylor 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."

Stephen M. Barr
— University of Delaware
"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."
