“Regaining Sanity for the Earth” is an informative and helpful masterpiece to be featured in the upcoming July 2012 Issue of the Library Journal Magazine
Pretoria, South Africa (PRWEB) June 26, 2012
A profound and enlightening read awaits everyone, especially those concerned about the future of humankind and the planet, in the pages of Klaus Nürnberger’s published book, Regaining Sanity for the Earth – why science needs ‘best faith’ to be responsible, why faith needs ‘best science’ to be credible.
This book is about the relationship between science and faith, but it places this relationship into the context of the perilous direction in which modernity has taken humankind over the last few centuries. For quite some time, perceptive analysts have warned that current trends lead humanity blindfolded towards an economic-ecological catastrophe of unprecedented proportions. The looming crisis makes collaborative faith-science relationships indispensable and urgent. It calls for a re-conceptualisation of Christian faith assumptions to integrate modern scientific insight. It also calls for a reorientation of scientific pursuits towards a vision of comprehensive optimal well-being as envisioned by the biblical faith.
Nürnberger provides a perceptive re-conceptualisation of the science-faith interface. Faith is not an alternative science; science is not an alternative faith. Science is about observation, explanation and prediction; faith is about grounding, orientation and vision. Science is about knowledge; faith is about commitment. The book first develops the argument from the side of science to a point where it can link up with faith. Then it develops the argument from the side of faith to a point where it can integrate contemporary science.
This is not a prophecy of doom; it is a wake-up call. Science and faith are foundational human pursuits. Their rationale is to serve humanity and its natural infrastructure. For the past four centuries science and faith have been drifting apart. Science has lost its transcendent foundations; faith has lost its credibility. ‘Best science’ and ‘best faith’ must again find each other and lead global processes in more wholesome directions.
This book will be advertised in the upcoming July 2012 Issue of the Library Journal Magazine.
