About The Books

 

In The Physics and Philosophy of the Bible, author and physician James Frederick Ivey explains how science, particularly quantum mechanics and relativity, aided by Plato’s philosophy and the history of Jewish people, can be utilized in order to virtually prove that God exists, that he is unique, and that he is the biblical deity. Ultimately an exploration of Christian philosophy and apologetics—including discussions of Christian history, secular retorts, the intersection of science and faith, and the relationship between physics and ultimate truth—The Physics and Philosophy of the Bible demonstrates that apologists are very close to the non-necessity of having to deal with whether God exists or not.

 

From Plato’s earliest philosophical insights to the most groundbreaking discoveries in contemporary physics, we can find the fingerprints of God that prove He is with us. And. God seeks us just as we seek him, for he desires cognitive individuals with whom he can enjoy mutual love and intimacy.

In Science, Philosophy, and Jesus, author and physician James Frederick Ivey draws on his extensive formal and continuing education, and a fifty-year medical practice heavy in counseling, to provide a work of Christian apologetics written in conjunction with unbounded imagination but regulated by logical reasoning. As the second volume in Dr. Ivey’s book series, The Inevitable Truth, this insightful apologetic explores the person of Christ, the incarnation of the true God who left his realm of ultimate reality to enter illusory space-time. Dr. Ivey shows that the message of Jesus, supported by science and Plato, can provide humanity with a new paradigm that will replace our selfishness with selfless love and giving.

We can know that God exists, that he is unique, and that he is indeed the biblical deity, and by seeking him and his Son further, we can draw closer to him in love and in faith, all the while becoming transformed into new persons in Christ.

“Because medical doctors or physicians have made vital contributions to philosophy, from Maimonides, Avicenna, and John Locke in the history of philosophy to Raymond Tallis today, it should not surprise us to see Dr. James Frederick Ivey’s superb contribution to our philosophical reflection on the bearing of current physics on Biblical faith. Perhaps it takes a person well trained in the application of science in medicine to see the ways in which the application of science, especially modern physics, quantum mechanics, and relativity have important applications in our thinking about God, the Bible, and Judeo-Christianity. The terrain is not unexplored by philosophers, theologians, and popular writers, but it is rare to see the kind of engaging clarity, breadth, and conscientious, mature reflection to be found in Ivey’s book”,endorsing The Physics and Philosophy of the Bible”. —Charles Taliaferro, PhD, Chairman of the Department of Philosophy, St. Olaf College, Northfield, Minnesota.

 

“In his book, The Physics and Philosophy of the Bible, Dr. James Ivey, although a physician, has done his homework in both the physical sciences and philosophy. He argues that modern physics, relativity and quantum mechanics, strongly imply the existence of God. He concludes that the historical man, Jesus of Nazareth, was not a lunatic or a liar, but truly God. He submits that Biblical Christianity has all the truth in it and is radically different from all other faiths in that regard. His book is a must read for those who have problems with science versus theology.” —David A. Kaufmann, PhD, Past Secretary, Creation Research Society and Professor of Applied Physiology (Retired), University of Florida, Gainesville, FL.

 

“Keep up the good work, Jim. You have taken on an important project. I find these devotionals both meaningful and enjoyable. One cannot go wrong with daily doses of Jesus. You state, ‘I try to give readers daily reminders of how logical and reasonable is the concept of God and the truth of Christian Scripture.’ Likewise, you stress that we must be totally committed to Christ. In 1 Peter 4:10, we read that each of us has been given some special abilities, and we are to use these abilities to help others, passing on to them God’s many kinds of blessings. Throughout your life, I’m sure God has given you special abilities you have used to help others. Your Christian walk and your successful career as a medical doctor are testimony to this fact. Now, God has gifted you to write devotionals and prayers for others. Your love for Christ, your study of Scripture, and your lifelong search for ultimate truth have prepared you for this assignment. You write very well. You have a knack for saying clearly what it is you want to say, and your grammar is excellent. Among believers, your devotionals and prayers have the potential to help them be more effective servants of our Lord. Among non-believers, your work has the potential to lead them to a life changing decision to accept Christ as their Savior. We must find ways to get your product in their hands.”
