"Judaism, the oldest monotheistic religion is facing a crisis in our times...but this situation of crisis is not inevitable. Both the Torah and evolution are the work of the same creator and therefore should serve the same Divine purpose..." (from the Introduction)
In A New Jewish World View, Ivan Orban develops a modern Jewish world view, which resolves the apparent contradiction between the facts of science and the teachings of the Torah. This worldview is based on a new kind of evolutionary hypothesis: Evolution consists of one single, reasonable process that points towards God, namely The Unfolding of Recognition in Creation.
This unique book begins by tracing the development of recognition, from the formation of atoms to the creation of life and to humankind today, and by presenting its characteristics and principles. Consequentially, it will appear that the principles obtained this way can be extended - without having to bend or be forced - to interpret the Torah. This finally unites Torah and evolution, and it becomes possible to recognize the authority of the Torah without having to close one's eyes to human evolution and scientific knowledge.
