Christianity and the Nature of Science

Where to Purchase


Are science and Christianity inherently incompatible? Is creation science a contradiction in terms? In this pioneering analysis, J. P. Moreland not only answers with a resounding no but makes an impressive contribution to the integration of Christianity and science.

Now back in print, this volume expands on concepts outlined in the author's previous book, Scaling the Secular City. Christianity and the Nature of Science encourages readers to think more clearly about the way science and theology interact. It dispels the notion that science is a matter of rational analysis and Christianity a matter of faith. And it demonstrates how the biblical record regarding the origin of life can and should be a legitimate consideration in scientific study.

"I am enthusiastic about this book. I think it presents some important ideas that we, as Christians working in science, need to explore and discuss. The book should be very suitable for a text in a science course for non-science students, and I intend to use it for such a course."--Bernard J. Piersma, Perspectives on Science and Christian Faith

"Moreland has undertaken to give Christians a clear-eyed conception of science that does its legitimate authority full justice but is sharply resistant to contemporary tendencies to take that authority as ultimate, global, and autonomous. . . . Christianity and the Nature of Science is a nice piece of work. . . . I can recommend the book very highly."--Del Ratzsch, Calvin Theological Journal
