"Saint Paul and Sir Isaac Newton advised that we look for God in His works. But twentieth century science has revolutionized our understanding of the physical and biological universe. How should our changed understanding affect traditional thought about God? This bookseeks to answer this question. The first part of the book is a general por trayal of the universe, guided by what science says about it. In the secondpart traditional arguments for the existence of God are considered in rela tionship to the contemporary cosmological panorama. In separate concluding chapters the authors set forth alternative opinions as to whether or not the cosmos is indeed God's work." (from the back cover). Contents : Part One:The Cosmos. 1.
