Where Is This God of Yours?: For Those Who Wonder ...
Offering both intellectual refreshment and spiritual encouragement, Where is This God of Yours? explores the potential of evolutionary theory to transform how we see ourselves, our relationships, our belief systems, and our purpose for being here. Gathered from years of research and reading, Jean Denomme has woven her interests in history, science, and theology into this thorough discussion of evolutionary theory, the nature of human consciousness, and the nature of God. Where is This God of Yours? raises questions of God and presents basic evolutionary theory in regard to the development of the universe, earth, and humans. It examines Catholic teachings, human behavior, and human purpose within an evolutionary context, while providing insights into the sources of human suffering and consequent personal and social responsibility. This exploration of science and faith is geared for Catholics and other Christians who are looking for a way to believe without turning off their minds and for those who want to find a more engaging purpose for living on earth than the hope of some mythical life in another world.
