With respect for the history and ever-changing applications of mathematical principles, James Bradley and Russell Howell, along with a team of fellow scholars, invite readers to consider the rich intersection of mathematics and Christian belief.
Citizens of the twenty-first century generally believe that mathematics is all about numbers and formulas, with no religious significance- an attitude that belies the faith-based work of thinkers from Plato to Newton. It is time to reawaken our sensitivity to the vital spiritual matters raised by the study of mathematics, a discipline that demands profound thought and helps us understand the beauty and the order of our physical world.
Mathematics Through the Eyes of Faith explores questions such as:
What is the relationship between chance and divine providence?
Do concepts like infinity point beyond themselves to a higher reality?
Is mathematics discovered or invented, and why is it effective in the sciences?
This comprehensive work, one in a series of cosponsored by the Council for Christian Colleges & Universities, is designed to help students and teachers understand how mathematics has evolved and how the interplay of mathematics and Christian belief can enrich the study of both.
