God and Cosmos God and Cosmos

A Christian view of time, space, and the universe

by Byl, John

In his book A Brief History of Time, the famous Cambridge cosmologist Stephen Hawking held out the prospect of a complete theory of the universe by means of which we would know ‘why it is that we and the universe exist … then we would know the mind of God.’ Christian mathematician John Byl disagrees: ‘Hawking over-estimates the value of the Theory-of-Everything, while under-estimating the content of God’s mind.’

We already have in Scripture a source of knowledge superior to all other sources and already know ‘the mind of God’, so far as He has been pleased to reveal it to us. On this basis, Byl questions much of modern cosmology, including the Big-Bang theory of origins. He deals with the limitations of human knowledge, biblical teaching relevant to cosmology, the quest for extra-terrestrial intelligence, the existence of the spiritual real, heaven, angels, life after death, and much else. Byl’s approach is a refreshing counter to the dreary and ultimately meaningless outlook of modern cosmology.

John Byl is Professor of Mathematics and Head of the Department of Mathematical Sciences at Trinity Western University, Langley, British Columbia, Canada. He gained his Ph.D. in Astronomy at the University of British Columbia and is the author of numerous published papers.

Paperback, 243 pages, Index, extensive bibliography, and some drawings and charts.
