Reflections on the Nature of God
Edited by Michael Reagan
Introduction by Martin E. Marty
From the beginning of time, people have pondered the existence of God, the nature of God, and God's relationship to nature. In Reflections on the Nature of God, the editor of the perennial best sellers, The Hand of God and Inside the Mind of God, delves further into the mysteries of the universe. This time he explores the questions: What is the nature of God? How is that nature manifested? Does God continue to take an active role in our destiny, or did participation end with the creation of the universe?
The illustrations enhance and illuminate the questions that are considered. The quotations add depth and insights into the nature of existence, creation, and our relationship with our creator. New awe-inspiring images of the universe are juxtaposed with spectacular images from nature here on earth to serve as a backdrop for an exploration into the nature of God—in the varying forms that the word "nature" implies. Exhilarating, provocative, and inspiring, the photographs and reflections in Reflections on the Nature of God clarify why scientists are considering spirituality in their exploration of the universe. Visions of the glory and wonder of the natural world can feed this sense of awe in each one of us as well.
