About the Book

Scientific advances over the past 150 years have created a dilemma for persons of faith living in an increasingly secular world. Many scientific findings seem directly opposed to religious faith. Further, recent technological advances such as cloning, stem cell research, and CRISPR-Cas9 technology pose moral and ethical questions. How do religious people respond to complex scientific facts which seem to contradict their faith? This book, written by a scientist, explains current scientific phenomena from the viewpoint of faith. Topics include: - Both sides: science and religion - Age of the earth - Creation/evolution controversy - Uniqueness of human spirituality - Would human clones have a soul? - Anthropic principle, string theory, and multiple universes - Postmodernist thought affecting today’s science - Is the Bible different from other secular or religious texts? - What is faith? - What does it mean to be a Christian?
