Beschreibung:

Dr. Eric Smith is founder of Momentum. He has been married to Krystal for 14 years and they have a son, Weathers. Eric holds a Masters of Divinity and Doctorate of Ministry from Liberty University. Eric brings 17 years of leadership experience, with 10 of those years spent as a senior pastor. His senior leadership includes being the co-founder of Vertical Church, a church plant in Mississippi that became one of the fastest growing churches in the state and grew to include four campuses. During that same time period, Eric co-founded the 242 Network, a church-planting network that assesses, trains and coaches church planters. After almost 7 of leadership as a church planter and 242 Network director, Eric took on the task of revitalizing Vaughn Forest Church in Montgomery, Alabama, a church that had been declining for almost 8 consecutive years. Under Eric's leadership, the church saw the momentum change and within a year and a half, Vaughn Forest Church was named in Outreach Magazine's list of 100 Fastest Growing Churches in America, being ranked the 55th fastest growing church in America.
Uniting the conceptual foundations of the physical sciences and biology, this groundbreaking multidisciplinary book explores the origin of life as a planetary process. Combining geology, geochemistry, biochemistry, microbiology, evolution and statistical physics to create an inclusive picture of the living state, the authors develop the argument that the emergence of life was a necessary cascade of non-equilibrium phase transitions that opened new channels for chemical energy flow on Earth. This full colour and logically structured book introduces the main areas of significance and provides a well-ordered and accessible introduction to multiple literatures outside the confines of disciplinary specializations, as well as including an extensive bibliography to provide context and further reading. For researchers, professionals entering the field or specialists looking for a coherent overview, this text brings together diverse perspectives to form a unified picture of the origin of life and the ongoing organization of the biosphere.
