Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This is a very readable and accessible story. The issues are not evaded, but dealt with in a sympathetic and informative manner. A must read for everyone who wonders about the differences between Islam and Christianity. A good book to add to your library on the subject.

5.0 out of 5 stars A Song For Our TImes, 22 Oct. 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Ukip Calypso (MP3 Download)
Perhaps it will not be the most enduring of songs, but it is very appropriate to the current political climate. The nation and the EU need to hear it. Even if you personally don't agree with the sentiments expressed, you need to recognise the reasons why such a song is necessary in the first place. In any case, it's very entertaining!


More Things in Heaven and Earth: God and the Scientists
More Things in Heaven and Earth: God and the Scientists
by A. van den Beukel
Edition: Paperback

5.0 out of 5 stars The impact of the philosophy of science on scientists, 23 Mar. 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This is a very thoughtful reflection by the author, over a lifetime working as a physicist, of the impersonal nature of the scientific method and the effects it has on scientists. Since Christianity is about the relationship of humanity to an infinite-personal God, this has consequences for faith. The author exhibits a deep human warmth, and a profound understanding of the tensions between working as a scientist and living as a faithful human being in a personal relationship with family, friends and colleagues, and, overarching everything, with God.

The text is very rich and requires patient reading and re-reading for full understanding, but the effort is worth it. We could do with more people like A. van den Beukel.

5.0 out of 5 stars Forgotten History of the Church, 23 Mar. 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Excellent and well-researched book about a preiod in history that is largely ignored or forgotten. The impact on Christian Doctrine of the decisions of the Roman emperors to govern the empire is largely ignored. The decision by the emperor Theodosius in AD 381 to implement Constantine's Nicene formula of Christianity, and to call all other ideas and doctrines heresy, has had a profound and lasting effect on Christianity ever since. To be denounced as a heretic in those days carried very severe punishments, so other ideas were submerged under the emperor's edict. Heresy and orthodxy were at the mercy of imperial political decisions.

A very well-written book and accessible to the layman. A must read for the serious student of Church history.
