Thinking Science and Christian Faith Together

Integrated byJoel B. Green and Nancey Murphy

Today, it is difficult to read a newspaper or magazine, enjoy a novel, or watch a film without coming face to face with the latest scientific discoveries and their implications. Often, media outlets cast scientific discovery in sensational terms—sometimes as a direct challenge to traditional Christian beliefs. The general public might be excused for imagining that science is a perennial thorn in the flesh for biblical faith. This has been one way of telling the story, of course, but it is not one that makes much sense of the history of science-faith relations. . . .
