This is definitely a book for those interested in philosophy, theology and the relation of science and religion. The author, a professor of philosophy at Long Island University, views all existence as an exhibition of purpose and God as the creator of the physical world. All objects in nature are meaningful and holy, he maintains, and therefore science is but the study of the details of cosmic purpose. Thus the author would make of science an ally not a foe of religion. Closely written, and argued with constant reference to modern philosophical trends, this book makes a real contribution to the intellectual foundation for faith for a modern man.
