In the questioning spirit of Socrates, Dr Parkinson argues that Christianity must be true to its basic principles of truth seeking. He traces the evolution of Christian thought and belief from its earliest foundations to the present day and proposes its future evolution in the light of new scientific understanding, in particular recent discoveries in Cosmology.

He addresses the question that as we are built in the image of God, how can we become closer to God and more specifically, acquire the mind of God, who made us in his own image; thus breaking new ground in the field of anthropology.

Beyond Christianity

Science and religion are both undergoing a crisis of identity. Religion in the West is struggling to escape the ancient concept of a purely external God, a male entity in a notional heaven to whom or to which worship is due, while science struggles to explain the causal origin of the Big Bang without bringing in an external creating power. So far the preferred options of orthodox science are that the universe existed forever or came into existence without a cause, both clearly non-explanations. Most religionists have no awareness that religion evolves and, similarly, most who would define themselves as scientists would probably be surprised to know that the word "scientist" was only invented in 1833 and its use was, in fact strongly resisted for a good many years. Few scientists today would consider themselves to be philosophers, as once they did, and this lack of thinking at philosophical depth is leading to scientism, which is more akin to religious fundamentalism than to the open-mindedness that once was the characteristic of science.

The Global Energy Trap

A New Renaissance
Click image to enlarge


The “global energy trap” of the title refers to the fact that our civilization has been built on energy derived from fossil fuels and when these are exhausted there must be a collapse of some kind. However, long before we have run them down to exhaustion we shall have pushed atmospheric pollution and global warming beyond a tipping point. In this situation there is no rational choice except to develop clean, renewable energy sources with all deliberate haste. How this can be done is the central theme of the book. Although the answer is largely one of innovative engineering, other social and economic factors must be taken into account, and the book is written for the general reader who is interested in all aspects of this problem, which is becoming increasingly urgent.
