Is Eternity Already Here? by Christian Howard is a thought-provoking and intellectually stimulating exploration of the nature of time, space, and eternity. Through a rigorous examination of philosophy, theology, and science, Howard presents a compelling argument for the existence of eternity as a timeless, infinite reality that exists alongside our temporal world.
At the heart of Howard's argument is the idea that time is not a fundamental feature of reality, but rather a human construct that we use to make sense of the world around us. He draws on the work of philosophers such as Immanuel Kant and Henri Bergson to argue that our experience of time is relative and subjective, and that time itself is an illusion created by our minds.
Building on this foundation, Howard explores the concept of eternity and argues that it is not something that exists in the future or the past, but rather something that is present in every moment of our lives. He draws on the teachings of various spiritual traditions, including Christianity, Hinduism, and Buddhism, to argue that eternity is not just a philosophical concept, but a spiritual reality that can be experienced in the present moment.
One of the strengths of Howard's argument is the way in which he brings together diverse strands of thought from philosophy, theology, and science. He draws on scientific theories such as relativity and quantum mechanics to argue that our understanding of time is constantly evolving, and that there may be other dimensions of reality beyond our current understanding.
At the same time, Howard is careful to ground his arguments in a strong theological and spiritual foundation. He draws on the teachings of the Bible to argue that God exists outside of time, and that eternity is a central aspect of Christian theology. He also explores the concept of the "eternal now," drawing on the writings of theologians such as Augustine and Aquinas to argue that God's existence is not limited to any particular moment in time.
Throughout the book, Howard presents a clear and compelling argument for the existence of eternity as a timeless, infinite reality that exists alongside our temporal world. He writes in a clear and accessible style, making complex philosophical and theological concepts understandable for a general audience.
Overall, Is Eternity Already Here? is an impressive work of scholarship and a compelling exploration of some of the most fundamental questions about the nature of reality. Whether you are a philosopher, theologian, or simply someone interested in exploring the big questions of life, this book is sure to stimulate your mind and deepen your understanding of the nature of time, space, and eternity
