Science and Christianity: Close Partners or Mortal Enemies? By Dave Armstrong
eBook (PDF): $1.99
Download immediately.
It's very fashionable nowadays to assert that Christianity and science are antithetical, or that God has been ruled out of science or disproven (particularly by Darwinian evolution), or that science... More > is based on reason and evidence, whereas religion (being faith-based) supposedly cares little or nothing for same, or that one cannot consistently be a Christian and also a "real" scientist. I shall contend that not only are science and Christianity completely compatible, but that modern science would not have even gotten off the ground if it hadn't been for medieval, scholastic, Catholic thought. I shall demonstrate that the foundations of modern science in the 16th century were overwhelmingly Christian and theistic. The notion that science and religion are fundamentally incompatible is ludicrous and would obliterate science at its very roots. Includes: mini-biographies of 293 scientists and a chart of 115 scientific fields of study founded or extraordinarily advanced by Christian or theistic scientists.< Less

The Quotable Summa Theologica By Dave Armstrong
eBook (ePub): $2.99

More > most influential theological books ever written. The goal herein is to make the thought and reasoning of this marvelous compendium of the Angelic Doctor more accessible and able to be referenced quickly. My overwhelming emphasis in collecting excerpts will be on theology itself; with far less on the topics of spirituality, ethics, and other areas. Sometimes even those of us who love Aquinas, have neither the time nor desire to read through the reasoning chain that he uses in the 3,500-page "Summa" to come to his conclusions. St. Thomas’ style in the Summa is a wonderful method and fabulous teaching device, but perhaps there are a lot of people like me who would also like to see concise, easily obtainable “answers” from Aquinas. I hope you, the reader, will benefit from my true labor of love.< Less

Cardinal Newman: Q & A in Theology, Church History, and Conversion By Dave Armstrong
eBook (ePub): $2.99
Download immediately.
Cardinal Newman stated “I am not a theologian” many times in his letters. In the strict “academic” or “scholarly” sense, indeed he was not. Yet in another broader... More > sense, he certainly was one. In any event, he wrote exquisitely on theology. His personal letters were "popular" and non-technical. In effect, here he becomes a catechist and apologist. Scholars write to and for other scholars, whereas Catholic catechists, apologists, and evangelists try to reach the masses (and Catholics) with the good news of the glorious fullness of the Catholic Christian faith. Moreover, in Cardinal Newman's writing we find extraordinary prose: a feast of 19th century eloquent English style; and we encounter a saintly man. My goal is to create almost a “systematic theology” from Cardinal Newman, by use of many topical categories. This volume may be of particular usefulness for possible converts, as well as Catholics seeking to revive an uncertain or tentative personal Catholic faith. There is much precious treasure here.< Less
