For many people, science has sounded the death knell for God. It has shown that God probably doesn't exist, because all the things we previously used God to explain can now be understood as produced by natural processes rather than an all powerful deity. Even if God does exist, he's irrelevant—a bystander in the cosmic drama that began with a Big Bang, became more complex, and eventually achieved conscioussness by means of undirected evolution. This drama has now culminated in a part of the universe—humanity—looking back on itself and learning where it came from. In six discussions designed to get small groups thinking and interacting, each guide in the Tough Questions series deals frankly with objections commonly raised about Christianity. You'll engage in the kind of spirited dialog that shows the Christian faith can stand up to scrutiny.

Review 1 for Do Science and the Bible Conflict? Tough Questions, Revised
Date:August 11, 2008
I have to say that I was very disappointed in this book. I thought it would be a thought provoking comparison showing how the bible can be relied upon scientifically. It wasn't. If you read long enough you might get the impression that the author is a Christian but even that is wishy-washy. There was more discussion and defense of modern atheistic science than of the bible. I had heard that there are quite a few examples where scientists used what was discussed in the bible to make and prove scientific discoveries. This is not the book to read if you want to know more about them. I definitely would not give this to someone who I was trying to show how our God is rational and logical the Creator of all things - especially science.
