Moreland. Science & Math Books > Astronomy Books/5(5). If you are struggling to understand the relationship between science, Christianity, and secularism like I am, I wholeheartedly recommend J.P. Moreland's book, Christianity and the Nature of Science: a Philosophical Investigation.

Here are a few important takeaways: Scientists and philosophers of science disagree about the definition of science. To the Christian, science is merely that branch of discovery that categorizes, discovers, and utilizes the knowledge woven into the fabric of the universe by a Sovereign, All Powerful, and Omniscient, Creator.

Science is not the end of all things, but merely one of the means by which man may glorify God. Mere Christianity, by C. Lewis This is not a book about science and faith per se. Yet Lewis took up scientifically informed atheism and responded with a.

First, the book of nature is a reference to general revelation. Special revelation reveals what God did to reconcile the world to himself (the Bible). General revelation reveals what God has shown in creation (the book of nature).

"Today's physics actually confirms what the Bible says about the nature of God, His creations and reality," a press release said. In the book Hicks reminds readers of the single constant in the universe, light, not space and time.

The Bible is not a science book, yet it is scientifically accurate. The Bible describes the chemical nature of flesh. Genesis If you like reading books, a good one that addresses the facts that support Christianity is Know Why You Believe by Paul Little.

There is an advantage to a book—it does not change as a page on the Internet can. "There is nothing in Christian faith that should make one afraid of science's widening and deepening knowledge. No matter how enormous the picture of the natural world turns out to be, it can never surpass the infinity we have always attributed to God."

Christianity, as practiced by billions of people worldwide, still rests on a foundation that was erected by desert tribesmen who lived thousands of years ago in a tiny spot on a the surface of a planet that itself is, as we now know, an infinitesimal speck in an immense universe.

Many of the original concepts of these tribesmen, as recorded in the Old and New Testaments and built upon over time.

Quite the contrary—Christian theological views shaped modern science in very important ways, while science influenced how Christians read the Bible. These scientists left us a legacy of trust; trust that the God we find revealed in the book of Scripture can also be seen in the book of nature and that God’s word and God’s works both lead us to a greater love of God.
