Cosmos and creator by Stanley L Jaki( Book )

7 editions published in 1980 in English and held by 249 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Can science measure the age of the universe? Can telescopes view the birth of the cosmos and bring man face to face with its creation? Or are these feats and prospects so many fashionable exaggerations or thinly veiled expressions of uneasiness? Where does science end, where does philosophy begin, and where does theology take over in a responsible discourse about the creation of the universe? Such are the main questions for which an answer is offered in this book
Means to message : a treatise on truth by Stanley L Jaki( Book )

4 editions published in 1999 in English and held by 241 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Every Philosophy is a Message. For conveying that message there has to be a tangible means, such as a book. Therefore, for the sake of a minimum of consistency, the philosopher's message or system should account in full for the reality of the means. This new book by Stanley L. Jaki aims at unfolding the consequences of this minimum for the main topics of philosophy. The necessary first topic is the objective reality of the means, or in general "objects." Any neglect of this will result, Jaki argues, in philosophical sleights of hand that endlessly breed one another. Jaki then removes some misconceptions about clarity, as usually identified with science, and demonstrates that science as such cannot account for the reality of the means that carries its message
Praying the Psalms : a commentary by Stanley L Jaki( Book )

1 edition published in 2001 in English and held by 240 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Since the psalms are Old Testament prayers by origin, their teaching is very incomplete about trials, whose full meaning was revealed only through Christ's suffering. The psalms contain only faint hints about the fact that from God's perspective life really begins with death. But the psalms remain unparalleled expressions of souls who struggle to hold on to God no matter what and who experience moments of surpassing joy." "The purpose of this book is to help Christians grasp the basic meaning of each psalm so that the act of praying them might truly become an elevation of the mind to God. After providing general background on the psalms, including reflections on their use as both Jewish and Christian prayers, Stanley Jaki offers commentary on each individual psalm. He avoids exegetical minutiae, providing instead precisely enough explanation of the original cultural and theological setting of each psalm to let the usefulness of praying any of them fully emerge." "A Christian scholar, Jaki has recited all 150 psalms once every week for the past sixty years. As a result, his book not only offers learned insight into the meaning of the psalms but is also built on personal experience, making it a powerful devotional tool. Readers will find here helpful pointers for turning the recitation of the psalms into living prayers relevant to today's troubled world."--Jacket
