DESCRIPTION

this item is out of print.

Beyond Belief introduces the complex relationship between science and the Christian faith. It is accessible both to Christians and the interested general reader.

The book starts by introducing science and the various types of questions that science is good at tackling, as well as the questions that science excludes. The various differences as well as similarities between scientific and religious ways of knowing are then addressed. This leads on to a discussion of whether science itself has been discredited. The authors then look at science from a more Christian perspective. They examine the robust theism promoted by Biblical theology and Christianity's emphasis on the goodness of matter.

The final section of the book focuses on the hot issues that are likely to dominate the science-faith debate for at least the first decade of the 21st century: creation and evolution; the new genetics; novel reproductive technologies and the environment.
