About this title

Synopsis:

The question of the meaning of life challenges each one of us, even as our schools attempt to channel us in our teen years into a choice for a vocation. Attempting to answer this question, this book first explores science and philosophy, then examines faith and the scriptures, and finally searches for the real historical Jesus to develop an answer. This book delves right into the major issues of the nature of the world, the nature of God, and a search for Jesus without adherence to the previously established theological principles of the Christian church. A critical and analytical approach has been used in this work, as it begins with some of the most basic questions about life and our existence on this planet, starting with an examination of the physical world using both traditional physics and advanced theoretical physics concepts to explain the nature of the universe. The first chapter includes a discussion of the nature of God and proposes some initial responses to the primary question posed about the reason for our existence. In the second chapter a substantive definition of faith is proposed. This chapter also recommends applying reason and critical analysis to an understanding of the scriptures. The third chapter takes a rigorous intellectual view of the gospels to explain the nature of Jesus, to identify his uniqueness, and to finalize the answer to the question previously proposed. No attempt has been made to write a textbook or to cover all of the theological topics in this field.

About the Author:

Author- Calvin L. Keeler, Sr. is retired and currently divides his time between writing, teaching in a church setting, and being an active minister of visitation for his church, visiting those who are seriously or terminally ill at home and in the hospital. Calvin received his BS Degree from Trinity College in 1951 and his MA Degree in Mathematics from Harvard University in 1953. He then spent two years in divinity school on the core subjects of Old and New Testaments, Church History, and Systematic Theology. His career was as a professional mathematician who spent fifteen years, working with top scientists to develop the science of ICBM and spacecraft reentry. Afterward, Calvin spent twenty-seven years in information processing systems, mostly as a manager, and finishing as a senior vice president in a mutual fund company. His life-long avocation has always been the study of theology and church work. This book has always been a hope and an aspiration.
