The Divine Imprint
But what does that mean? Surely looking inwards we find nothing but the contents of one’s own mind. Where does God come in? It is by the examination of the contents of the mind and trying to understand how they got there that one seeks clues about God’s influence on the mind. Our consciousness bears a resemblance to that Consciousness from which it is directly derived. It bears his imprint. It is from the characteristics of that imprint we get to know what kind of God we are dealing with. Only then can we be open to realizing how that other creation of his, the physical world, also bears his imprint.
As his BBC 'Thought for the Day' broadcasts illustrate, Russell Stannard is a master at explaining big ideas in simple prose. He is also one of the world’s great communicators at the boundaries of science and faith. So—no surprise—The Divine Imprint is a fascinating tour of recent explorations of human nature, theology, and the possibility that God’s mind may be revealed in the depths of our own minds.
Russell Stannard is one of the very best scientific educators we have. He has a wonderful gift for imaginative exploration.
