Richmond Walker

A book on the life and work of Richmond Walker, author of the classical A.A. meditational work Twenty-Four Hours a Day. Rich, a businessman who got sober in the newly founded Boston A.A. group, was one of the four most published early A.A. authors. I have most of the research for this book finished, but have not begun any actual writing yet.





Infinity and the Proofs for
the Existence of God

This book gives a new look at the five traditional proofs for the existence of God presented by St. Thomas Aquinas (1225-1274) in his Summa Theologica and Summa Contra Gentiles. The medieval teleological understanding of causality is replaced with a modern dynamic interpretation of the divine energies. This, together with a more careful analysis of what the concept of infinity does and does not mean -- infinity is NOT a number, but a kind of process -- shows that the old proofs still have to be taken seriously today.

Originally written in the 1990's, based on lectures I had given over the years at the University of Virginia (1968-70) and Indiana University (1970-2003), this book basically just needs some careful reformating and a little final editing, and it will be ready to send to the typesetters.






"As the deer longs for flowing streams
so longs my soul for you, O God.
My soul thirsts for God, for the living God."

Psalm 42:1-2
