This book can be downloaded and read in Apple Books on your Mac or iOS device.
Does a scientific account of human and natural history have room for the “God question”?
Using the principles of “Big History,” Ted Peters’s God in Cosmic History: Where Science and History Meet Religion broadens the scope and method of traditional history in order to make room for the all-important God question. This expanded history pauses on the “Axial Age” of human history: a moment during the first millennium in which questions of transcendence first simultaneously arose in distinct locations around the world. By exploring this threshold in cosmic history, Peters demonstrates the way the arrival of the God question marked a radical new human consciousness, one that ultimately laid the groundwork for the modern age.
Ted Peters is a Research Professor at the Center for Theology and the Natural Sciences.
