The Sacred Cosmos. Christian Faith and the Challenge of Naturalism

In this five part series from Jan 3, 2010 to Feb 7, 2010, based on the book The Sacred Cosmos: Christian Faith and the Challenge of Naturalism by Terence L. Nichols, we challenged the "new atheism," the "naturalistic" thinking that the natural universe is "probably" all that there is, a world view responsible for the widespread decline of Christianity in Europe and a half-hearted faith among many Christians in America. Instead, we offered a persuasive vision of a world of many-leveled richness, whose Creator is continually active within its unfolding history.

Professor Nichols is a professor of theology at the University of St. Thomas in St. Paul, MN. Presentations were by David Monyak.
