Scottish judge Adam Gifford believed that the active knowledge of God engenders humanity’s well-being. Thus, in his 1885 will, he bequeathed funds to four Scottish universities—Edinburgh, Aberdeen, Glasgow, and St. Andrews—for the establishment of a lecture series dealing with the topic of natural theology. For over a century, the Gifford Lecture Series has featured the most prestigious theologians, ethicists, philosophers, and scientists, presenting premier research and insightful perspectives on the value of natural theology. Philosopher Jacques Barzun described the Gifford Lectures as “the highest honor in a philosopher’s career.”
This collection contains a selection of 19 lectures from the University of Edinburgh’s Gifford Series. The lecturers meditate on topics including the purpose of human existence, the design of the universe, the nature of nature, immortality, and the study of religion. Anyone interested in theology, philosophy, or science will find this collection a valuable addition to their digital library.
