Join Magis Institute of Reason and Faith founder Fr. Robert Spitzer and Discovery Institute Senior Fellow Bruce Gordon on Monday, July 12, for an informative and engaging look at Fr. Spitzer's new book, New Proofs for the Existence of God: Contributions of Contemporary Physics and Philosophy, published by Eerdmans, William B. Publishing Company. Throughout the past decades, scientific volumes have been written discounting the existence of God on evidence provided by physics and philosophy. In his new work, Fr. Spitzer takes a fresh look at the evidence, countering the previous conclusions. From universal space-time asymmetry to cosmic coincidences to the intelligibility of reality, Robert Spitzer tackles a wealth of evidence. He considers string theory, quantum cosmology, mathematical thoughts on infinity, and much more. This fascinating and stunning collection of evidence provides solid grounding for reasonable and responsible belief in a super-intelligent, transcendent, creative power standing at the origins of our universe.

Robert J. Spitzer, S.J. is the former president of Gonzaga University, located in Spokane, Washington. His other books include The Spirit of Leadership, Healing the Culture, and Five Pillars of the Spiritual Life. Dr. Bruce Gordon, CSC Senior Fellow and Associate Professor of Science and Mathematics at The King's College, also contributed to this work.

The event will be held on Monday, July 12, at 7:30 p.m. at Demaray Hall 150 on the campus of Seattle Pacific University, Seattle, Washington. (The Center, and adjoining parking, is on the campus of Seattle Pacific University in the Queen Anne District). The event is free and no RSVP is necessary.
