[NEW ARRIVALS] The Science of God: The Convergence of Scientific and Biblical Wisdom
AUTHOR: Gerald L. Schroeder
GENRE: Social Sciences
Schroeder is an Israeli physicist and scholar of Genesis who maintains that a properly understood Bible and properly understood science provide consistent sets of data.
In recent decades, scientific discoveries in cosmology, paleontology and quantum physics do not demonstrate or prove the activity of God, he says, but they do remove conflict with that activity. Rapprochement occurs when believers read the Bible on the Bible’s terms, avoiding literalism, and when scientists realize that science is powerless to define the purpose of life. Schroeder is very lucid in explaining difficult scientific concepts, such as the passage of time according to the theory of relativity, and religious data such as the original Hebrew words.
