  • Science And The Doctrine Of Creation

    $28.00

    Exploring the theological reception of developments of modern science, this collection of studies from the Henry Center’s Creation Project examines how influential modern theologians-from the turn of the nineteenth century through the present-have engaged the scientific developments of their times in light of the doctrine of creation.

    Can Christians take seriously the claims of modern science without compromising their theological integrity? Can theology contribute to our understanding of the natural world without reducing the doctrine of creation to a few flashpoint issues? While there is no shortage of works that treat the intersection between science and religion, little attention has been paid to the theological reception of developments of modern science. Yet a deeper look at the history of Christian thought offers a wealth of insight from theological giants for navigating this complex terrain. Science and the Doctrine of Creation examines how influential modern theologians-from the turn of the nineteenth century through the present-have engaged the scientific developments of their times in light of the doctrine of creation. In each chapter a leading Christian thinker introduces readers to the unique contributions of a key theologian in responding to the assumptions, claims, and methods of science.
    Chapters include
    *Kevin J. Vanhoozer on T. F. Torrance
    *Katherine Sonderegger on Karl Barth
    *Craig G. Bartholomew on Abraham Kuyper
    *Christoph Schwobel on Wolfhart Pannenberg

    Edited by Geoffrey Fulkerson and Joel Chopp of the Carl F. H. Henry Center for Theological Understanding, this book grows out of the Henry Center’s Creation Project, which promotes biblically faithful and scientifically engaged dialogue around the doctrine of creation. From Warfield’s critical appraisal of Darwinian evolution to Pannenberg’s pneumatological reflections on field theory, these studies explore how Christians can think more carefully about the issues at stake using the theological resources of their traditions.

  • 3 Views On Christianity And Science

    $18.99

    When it comes to relating Christianity to modern Western culture, perhaps no topic is more controversial than the relationship between Christianity and science. Outside the church, the myth of an age-old conflict between science and Christianity is nearly ubiquitous in popular culture and can poison the well before a fruitful dialogue can begin. Within the church, opposing viewpoints on the relation between Christianity and science often lead to division and rancor.

    Three Views on Christianity and Science addresses both types of conflict. Featuring leading evangelical representatives, it presents three primary options for the compatibility of Christianity and science and models constructive dialogue on the surrounding controversial issues.

    The highlighted contributors and their views are:

    Michael Ruse, Independence View–When functioning correctly, science and Christian theology operate independently of each other, seeking answers to different questions through different means.

    Alister McGrath, Dialogue View–Though the natural sciences and Christian philosophy and theology function differently, they can and should inform each other.
    Bruce L. Gordon, Constrained Integration View–Science, philosophy, and theology all contribute to our understanding of reality. Their interactions constrain each other and together present an optimally coherent and integrated picture of reality.

    By engaging with the viewpoints of the contributors, readers will come away with a deeper understanding of the compatibility of science and Christianity, as well as of the positions of those who disagree with them. Scholars, students, pastors, and interested laypeople will be able to make use of this material in research, assignments, sermons and lessons, evangelism, and apologetics.

  • God On The Brain

    $19.99

    The human brain is incredibly complex. Both Christian and secular scholars alike affirm this fact, yet the traditional view of humanity as spiritual beings made in the image of God has come under increased pressure from humanistic and materialistic thinkers who deny that humans are anything more than their physical bodies. Christians have long affirmed that humans are spiritual beings made by God to know and fellowship with him, while the humanist position views humans as merely evolved animals.

    Bradley Sickler provides a timely theological, scientific, and philosophical assessment of the human brain, highlighting the many ways in which the gospel informs the Christian understanding of cognitive science. Here is a book that provides a much-needed summary of the Bible’s teaching as it sheds light on the brain, with careful interaction with the claims of modern science, arguing that the Christian worldview offers the most compelling vision of the true nature of humanity.

  • Why Science And Faith Need Each Other

    $17.99

    Science and faith are often seen as being in opposition. In this book, award-winning sociologist Elaine Howard Ecklund questions this assumption based on research she has conducted over the past 15 years. She highlights the ways these two spheres point to universal human experiences, showing readers they don’t have to choose between science and Christianity.

    Breathing fresh air into debates that have consisted of more opinions than data, Ecklund offers insights uncovered by her research and shares her own story of personal challenges and lessons. In the areas most rife with conflict–the origin of the universe, evolution, climate change, and genetic technology–readers will find fascinating points of convergence in 8 virtues of human existence: curiosity, doubt, humility, creativity, healing, awe, shalom, and gratitude. The book includes discussion questions for group use and to help pastors, small group leaders, and congregants broach controversial topics and bridge the science-faith divide.

  • Creation Rediscovered : Finding New Meaning In An Ancient Story

    $19.95

    Debates over creation have risen to fever pitch. Darwinists, young-earthers, figurativists, and literalists vie for attention. Leonard believes there is no need to choose between scriptural accounts and scientific evidence. The key is to re-situate the biblical texts within their original ancient context—thereby uncovering a more profound meaning than we previously recognized.

  • Wormwood Prophecy : NASA, Donald Trump, And A Cosmic Cover-Up Of End-Time P

    $17.99

    Does the Bible predict an asteroid…or something else?

    This book will challenge your interpretation of end-times theology and help you sharpen your understanding in light of current times.

    Does Revelation 8:10-11 describe an asteroid?

    Is the Wormwood star from Revelation 8 already headed toward Earth? Are NASA and high-level government officials aware of an asteroid that is on a collision course with our planet? Is that why President Trump sanctioned a colossal increase to planetary defense? Do the prophecies from ancient cultures and religions across the globe all point to a catastrophic planetary event that has scientists and politicians taking extreme preventative measures under the public radar?

    Earth is not currently prepared for the scope of impact that may be just around the corner, and people in high places know it…

    But what will the biblical Wormwood actually be? Traditional scholarly interpretation claims it will be an asteroid. Others postulate that the eschatological poisoning of one-third of all Earth’s waters and the devastation of our planet’s ecology might not be as detectable as we may believe: it could hit suddenly and without warning, like an angel of God appearing in the sky with fire and light, bringing judgment in an instant.

    Follow Thomas Horn as he blazes a trail through these questions and many others, posing answers that very few in the church today are willing to provide. Continue Reading Wormwood Prophecy : NASA, Donald Trump, And A Cosmic Cover-Up Of End-Time P

  • Genealogical Adam And Eve

    $27.00

    Evolutionary science teaches that humans arose as a population, sharing common ancestors with other animals. Most readers of the book of Genesis in the past understood all humans descended from Adam and Eve, a couple specially created by God. These two teachings seem contradictory, but is that necessarily so? In the fractured conversation of human origins, can new insight guide us to solid ground in both science and theology? In The Genealogical Adam and Eve, S. Joshua Swamidass tests a scientific hypothesis: What if the traditional account is somehow true, with the origins of Adam and Eve taking place alongside evolution? Building on well-established but overlooked science, Swamidass explains how it’s possible for Adam and Eve to be rightly identified as the ancestors of everyone. His analysis opens up new possibilities for understanding Adam and Eve, consistent both with current scientific consensus and with traditional readings of Scripture.
    These new possibilities open a conversation about what it means to be human. In this book, Swamidass:
    *untangles several misunderstandings about the words human and ancestry, in both science and theology
    *explains how genetic and genealogical ancestry are different, and how universal genealogical ancestry creates a new opportunity for rapprochement
    *explores implications of genealogical ancestry for the theology of the image of God, the fall, and people outside the garden

    Some think Adam and Eve are a myth. Some think evolution is a myth. Either way, the best available science opens up space to engage larger questions together. In this bold exploration, Swamidass charts a new way forward for peace between mainstream science and the Christian faith. Continue Reading Genealogical Adam And Eve

  • Confidence In Christ

    $19.95

    Recent developments in a wide range of sciences such as physics, astronomy, archaeology, and human genome DNA studies continue to reveal that what the Bible has been saying all along–and all alone–is exactly correct. As scientific discoveries have been exploding over the last several decades, the evidence supporting the Bible and the Christian faith is growing right in step with these new findings. The closer science draws to the ultimate truth, the closer it draws to the Bible and to revealing just how correct the Bible is concerning the origin of the universe, life, and the historicity of Jesus Christ.

    Confidence in Christ starts at the beginning of time and proceeds chronologically, pointing out exciting scientific evidence to support the Christian faith. The easy-to-understand format addresses a number of questions, including: How did the universe begin; does the big bang theory eliminate God; is humankind millions or thousands of years old; and is there credible evidence outside the Bible for Jesus? Continue Reading Confidence In Christ

  • Works Of His Hands

    $16.99

    Raised in a militant atheist family, Sy Garte fell in love with the factual world of science. He became a respected research biochemist with an anti-theistic worldview to bolster his work–and he had no intention of seeking a God he didn’t believe in. That is, until the very science he loved led him to question the validity of an atheistic worldview. His journey to answer the questions that confronted him drew him into becoming a fully committed Christian, determined to show others the truth: modern science doesn’t contradict God at all but instead supports Christianity. In the first half of the book, Sy begins with how his experiences and quest for knowledge as a student and early in his career brought him to question his materialist assumptions. He goes on to reveal how lessons from physics, biology, and human nature–all presented for lay readers to easily understand–actually argue for belief in God. In the second half of the book, Sy looks at the arguments often presented against God in academic and scientific settings and explains the false foundations on which they rest. For those who have been told that the realities of science call for a rejection of God–but can’t quite get rid of the feeling that this shouldn’t be true– The Works of His Hands is an ideal reminder that the two don’t have to be bitter enemies. Instead, this transformative book shares the beauty of the marriage between science and faith–and how, together, they can bring even the most unlikely to salvation.

  • Science And Faith

    $14.95

    How does science enhance faith? Is God relevant in an age of science? Science and Faith: Student Questions Explored investigates the relationship between science and Christianity in a series of thoughtful and accessible articles written by experts.

    Chosen from InterVarsity’s Emerging Scholars Network blog, each chapter addresses common faith- and science-related questions. In part one, Science and Faith delves into why Christians should pursue scientific discovery, as well as the Bible’s viewpoint on scientific method and inquiry. Part two begins the conversation on the direct relevance of science to faith and how Christian scientists can talk to their colleagues about their faith, while part three discusses how conversations about science can take place between Christians. Finally, part four explores the history of science and the church and the question How can the history of science encourage the church?

    While ideal for graduate students who are exploring their faith and their chosen scientific fields, this book can also be used in church settings or as a personal resource. The book provides questions to launch small group conversation about faith/science, whether you’re a science PhD, a ministry leader, or an interested layperson. Since each reading is based on questions from real students, it may also be a resource for Christian faculty teaching the sciences.

    Contributors include Ruth Bancewicz, Gerald Rau, Greg Cootsona, Andy Walsh, and more. Continue Reading Science And Faith
