About this product
- DescriptionThe aim of this book is to heal the old rift between faith and reason, and to open a new horizon for faith and science in the New Age. It is a moving dialogue designed to promote a proper understanding between faith and science, and to stimulate a living faith in God in a human community. It addresses such issues as the structure of faith, the elements of faith, the relation of faith to reason, ideology, miracle, science, education and human ecomy. It shows, through detailed analysis of key ideologies of science, and the critique of the modern science, how science viewed faith, life and society. The train-of-thought did t simply criticize ideologies intricate in sciences in the quest for providing a critique of scientific ideologies, but it affirmed scientific values. In a broader context, science and techlogy possess their values as means of overcoming poverty, ecomic stagnation and they form pathways to self-reliant ecomy, and ways of joint sharing of the goods of this world. The discussion succinctly links African society to sound university education as means of scientific and ecomic development at dawn of the twenty-first-century.
