About-

With some modifications, certain insights of St. Thomas Aquinas can be used to make good sense of this dynamic universe of evolving things. These foundational insights cover the nature of human
knowledge and the importance of acts-of-being.

The human mind is formed by interaction with God's effects in His creation and this interaction takes place during three billion years of evolution and also during the lifetime of an individual human being. Creation is a manifestation of thoughts which God wishes to share with us.

God Himself is His own Act-of-being or the Supreme Act-of-being while all the underlying stuff of created things is ever and continuously
brought into existence by God's acts-of-being. Complex things and living beings are brought into existence by acts-of-being best described as parts of a story being told by God. Even metaphysical and mathematical truths are better described as being facts created by the same God who created things. God is the source of all being and all truths.

Endorsements & Reviews-

"Loyd Fueston may be our Spinoza. Reading widely and thinking deeply he initiates a theological engagement with science that opens us to new visions of reality. Hopefully this book will not be overlooked by those who think only university professors can think."
--Stanley Hauerwas, Gilbert T. Rowe Professor of Theological Ethics, Divinity School, Duke University

Bio(s)-

Loyd L. Fueston earned a bachelor's degree in mathematics and then spent thirteen years as an actuary before devoting the next fifteen years studying, writing, and nurturing the spiritual conversion that brought him into the Catholic Church. As the unpublished novels piled up, he was finally irritated enough to work on a Trinitarian Christian worldview that swallows up all other types of human knowledge: scientific, philosophical, and practical.
