Review 1 for Science and Grace: God's Reign in the Natural Sciences
Science & Grace combines scholarly wisdom and practical advice to provide thoughtful Christians a clear perspective on a controversial issue. In a thorough analysis, the authors prove that science and the Bible are not at odds, but actually dovetail for a heightened appreciation of Gods creation. Although the subject is approached from an academic angle, the diligent reader will definitely become more knowledgeable about an issue that is impacting our culture. Theology and scientific beliefs are shown to be the foundation on which people interact with the world around them. Decisions about scientific endeavors are based on these convictions and those decisions may eventually touch the lives of millions of people. Developing a Christian worldview is not an option, but a necessity. These pages will guide believers through the maze of misinformation to find a definitive and purposeful path. Most noteworthy is the broad approach to this subject. The authors didnt dwell on the creation and evolution debate, but delved into other aspects of modern science and how they relate to Christian thinking and involvement. This offers readers a practical view of both the benefits, as well as the misuse of science, and offers advice on the right response to these situations. This book is ultimately an expression of the glory of Gods creation. Beholding the world through the lens of science magnifies the work of the Creator in the world today. This appreciation, combined with the factual evidence the authors provide, helps readers formulate an intelligent response to this subject, while also recognizing the responsibility that results. The book closes with some practical recommendations for combining science and Scripture in relevant areas of life. Science & Grace has the potential to propel Christians to the forefront of the scientific debates that shape our society, allowing their opinions to steer crucial and worldwide decisions. Joyce Handzo
