The question of origins remains a stumbling block for many. But just as the Psalmist gained insight into God's character through the observation of nature, modern scientific study can deepen and enrich our vision of the Creator and our place in his creation.

This book will make an excellent college textbook on the subject of science and Christianity. It covers a lot of material and flows well, starting with biblical interpretation, then up-to-date material on the origins of the universe, the earth, life, species, and humans. Each section concludes with a chapter on biblical and theological perspectives.

The authors clearly favor non-concordist (“parallels between biblical texts and scientific statements are not required and there are no e
