Paperback. Pictorial cover. 381pp., index. Full refund if not satisfied.Many people think science is antagonistic to Christian belief. Science, it is said, shows that the universe is billions of years old, while the Bible says it is only thousands of years old. And some claim that science shows supernatural miracles are impossible. These and other points of contention cause some Christians to view science as a threat to their beliefs.Redeeming Science attempts to kindle our appreciation for science as it ought to be-science that could serve as a path for praising God and serving fellow human beings. Through examining the wonderfully complex and immutable laws of nature, author Vern Poythress explains, we ought to recognize the wisdom, care, and beauty of God. A Christian worldview restores a true response to science, where we praise the God who created nature and cares for it.This book comes from the personal library of Morton H. Smith but does not have his personal library marking. This from Wikipedia: Morton Howison Smith (December 11, 1923 to November 12, 2017) was an American Presbyterian minister.
