  In chapter 5, "Scripture and Aristotelian Cosmology," we find a helpful sketch of the contributions of Aristotle and Ptolemy to the development of the idea of a spherical earth at the center of the cosmos, around which revolved seven concentric spheres (seven heavens), in which the sun, moon, and five planets were embedded, with God's throne.   Free Online Library: Kenneth J.

Frank Jennings Tipler (born February 1, ) is an American mathematical physicist and cosmologist, holding a joint appointment in the Departments of Mathematics and Physics at Tulane University. Tipler has written books and papers on the Omega Point based on Pierre Teilhard de Chardin's religious ideas, which he claims is a mechanism for the resurrection of the mater: Massachusetts Institute of Technology (BS), . “The assumption persists that modern science is free of metaphysical and theological presuppositions, and therefore neutral in their regard. Appealing to the image of God and nature found in the Christian doctrine of creation, Fr. David Alcalde, trained as both a theologian and an astrophysicist, examines this assumption from both ‘sides’—and clearly exposes its problematic character.”.

  The answer for this question depends solely on how deep do you want to go in the subject and also how mathematically inclined you are. I am not sure of some popular level books. Maybe Sean Carroll’s From Eternity to Here: The Quest for the Ultimat. "The Bible reveals God in ways that speak to all cultures, but does so from its human authors' own ancient cultures. Kyle Greenwood's Scripture and Cosmology explores one particular cross-cultural pressure point, the structure of the cosmos, by tracing this theme through the culture of the ancient Near East, the biblical writings and biblical interpreters who worked when early modern.

Using the coherent and unreduced image of God and nature provided by the Christian doctrine of creation ex nihilo, Fr. David Alcalde intends to uncover and criticize the incoherent theological assumptions inherent in a concrete branch of modern science, which is modern cosmology.

Book Description. In his book A Brief History of Time, the famous Cambridge cosmologist Stephen Hawking held out the prospect of a complete theory of the universe by means of which we would know ‘why it is that we and the universe exist then we would know the mind of God.’Christian mathematician John Byl disagrees: ‘Hawking overestimates the value of a Theory-of-Everything, while.

Modern cosmological knowledge has refuted such an account. We are living in the golden age of cosmology: More has been discovered about the large-scale structure and history of the visible cosmos in the last 20 years than in the whole of prior human history.

Good books on cosmology, astrophysics, or outside of my field for that matter, get people excited about the topic. There’s a lot in this trilogy that’s subtle and buried.

For example, there’s a lot of talk about the bigness of space that really gives you a sense of the actual size of space in a. Find helpful customer reviews and review ratings for Modern Cosmology and the Christian Idea of God at Read honest and unbiased product reviews from our users.5/5.

Edited with an introduction by noted scholar John Leslie, this volume offers superb selections on modern cosmology, relativistic theories of the universe, the Big Bang, the problem of God and creation, cosmology and verifiability, coincidences, origins and evolution, multiple universe theories, infinity, chaos, life forms, the end of time, and.

Evalyn Gates’s Einstein’s Telescope: The Hunt for Dark Matter and Dark Energy in the Universe is another book which explores how the universe was made.

That’s right, so after two more theoretical books I thought it would be a good idea to have a more down-to-earth book that really looks at how we know all of these wonderful things about the universe.

It seems clear that the New Testament writers believed in an ancient cosmology, where the heavens (God's dwelling place) was located above the earth, separated by the firmament.

In this sense, it seems they viewed Christ's ascent into heaven and eventual return as literal movements between the heavens above the earth and the earth itself.

Biblical cosmology is the biblical writers' conception of the cosmos as an organised, structured entity, including its origin, order, meaning and destiny.

The Bible was formed over many centuries, involving many authors, and reflects shifting patterns of religious belief; consequently, its cosmology is not always consistent. Nor do the biblical texts necessarily represent the beliefs of all. “God’s Two Books offers a detailed and extremely useful contribution to our understanding of the relationship between the way in which sixteenth-century astronomers read the Book of Nature, and especially the heavens, and their reading of the Book of Scripture.” (Journal of Ecclesiastical History)Cited by:.

According to the Book of Genesis, God created the universe - and all the heavenly bodies, the sun, the moon, and the stars - in six days.Kyle Greenwood's Scripture and Cosmology explores one particular cross-cultural pressure point, the structure of the cosmos, by tracing this theme through the culture of the ancient Near East, the biblical writings and biblical interpreters who worked when early modern cosmological ideas were taking root.

Although physical cosmology based on general relativity theory and elementary particle physics is thus a modern science, many of the theologically relevant questions related to current cosmology are by: 5.
