The last hundred years of scientific and philosophical thought have caused dramatic upheavals in how we view our universe, our spiritual beliefs, and ourselves. With the advent of Darwinism, relativity, nihilism, and existentialism, traditional religious dogmas have been challenged as never before. Increasingly, people are wondering if enduring spiritual and moral truths even exist.
Out of the Labyrinth brings fresh insight and understanding to this difficult problem. In clear and accessible language, Walters demonstrates the genuine compatibility of scientific and religious values, and how science and our most cherished moral values actually enrich and reinforce one another. The author lays out a new approach to spirituality that both solves the problem of meaninglessness and champions the possibility of human transcendence and divine truth
