What People are Saying About This
"Modern science, focusing on facts and power, is neither coherent nor existentially adequate. Instead of this crumbling edifice, the author of this book erects a new onewhich actually is the old onefounded on the wonder of existence and the appreciation of finding ourselves in a world that makes sense. The solution he offers is not only intellectually satisfying; it is even essential for solving the scientific, political, and moral challenges of our time."
Knut Alfsvag, professor of systematic theology, VID Specialized University, Stavanger, Norway; author of What No Mind Has Conceived? On the Significance of Christological Apophaticism
"Paul Tyson has a genius for entering into the everyday experience of the modern person. But rather than allowing the limits of that experience to dictate the ultimate meaning of things, he gently but compellingly opens it up to its forgotten roots and plants it in a healthier and more life-giving ground. In this case, that ground is an understanding of the great mystery of being and a robust, non-privatized faith."
D.C. Schindler, author of The Perfection of Freedom: Schiller, Schelling, and Hegel between the Ancients and the Moderns
