About-

Classical Christianity is rooted in a historical event: the Resurrection of Jesus of Nazareth. This is the central tenet of the Christian Faith. However there are a good number of tenets of Christianity that aren't historical at all. Rather, they are ontological. In other words, they are grounded in the nature of reality itself. 

In this work Rocco Boni shows how the dozen or so ontologically-based tenets of Christianity derive from the very foundations of reality; being grounded in the theistically-friendly ontology of quantum phenomenon. These tenets seem to have been built into the cosmos at the ground floor, their realization deriving from the indeterministic, immaterial, abstract nature of quantum process. 

This is not simply a book, it's a discovery. One that shows that the true ontic status of reality is not  simply theistic, but Christian. The structure of this theistic ontology is elegant and economic, both hallmarks of scientific truth. If there were such a thing as a Theistic Unification Theory, this would be it. 

Endorsements & Reviews-

“In this new contribution to the theology and science literature and written for the nonspecialist, Rocco Boni argues that quantum mechanics supports classical Christianity and resolves some long-standing disparities between science and Christianity. Boni bases his argument on the ontological claim that while the ordinary world of experience is physical and material, nature at the level of quantum phenomena is nonphysical and immaterial. He then adds to this dualist view of nature a Platonist view of the quantum wave-function. This allows Boni to claim that God, as disembodied, transcendent mind, can interact directly with nature at the immaterial, quantum level. By adopting a Copenhagen interpretation of quantum physics which supports an indeterministic view of the quantum world, Boni can also claim that God acts in the world without intervening in, and violating, the laws of nature and natural processes. Readers who have followed the recent discussions of quantum mechanics and divine action will find much to consider in Boni’s provocative book.”
