In The Beginning DVD Set
Pope John Paul
Fides et Ratio
This curriculum has received ecclesiastical approval through imprimatur by † Most Reverend Tod D. Brown, Bishop of Orange, California on July 11, 2012.
There is no contradiction between faith and reason. This encouraging truth is the bedrock for In the Beginning: Evidence For God From Physics. Ideal for the inquiring mind, this study set features four presentations by Fr. Robert J. Spitzer, S.J., Ph.D.
The In the Beginning course explores the content of this book including what, if any, the limits of scientific evidence are and whether such evidence provides support for a beginning and design of the universe.
The Big Bang Theory is also addressed as is the oscillating universe theory and the multiverse theory. Additionally, Fr. Spitzer speaks to the following questions: is the Bible doing science and can human beings be explained by an evolutionary (biophysical) process alone? The final week of the course explores evidence for survival of human consciousness after death as well as the possibility for extraterrestrial life.
In the Beginning is an excellent resource for use by individuals or groups whether in a classroom, parish or faith study setting.
