The Language of Science and Faith

March 11, 2011

Scot McKnight begins a series of posts on Karl W. Giberson and Francis S. Collins’ book, The Language of Science and Faith: Straight Answers to Genuine Questions.  Collins has also written The Language of God: A Scientist Presents Evidence for Belief.

The Language of Science and Faith is not an encyclopedia of frequently asked questions – it is a readable book walking through many of the frequently asked questions in a narrative form. It is written for the nonscientist and will make a good resource for those with questions, for discussion groups, and for church leaders.  I am not going to run through the entire book, but I will put up a few posts over the next several weeks using this book as a springboard to discuss some of the frequently asked questions.

McKnight takes a look first at these two questions:

  • What are the most important questions raised by modern science? What questions would you like to see addressed?
  • What are the most important objections to the theory of evolution? Why is evolution troubling?

Adam Palmer at InternetMonk gives his review here.
