Item description for On the Seventh Day: Forty Scientists and Academics Explain Why They Believe in God by John Ashton...
Overview For all their intellectual gifts, those with PhD's are hungry for the same thing the rest of the population seeks: peace and spiritual fulfillment. Som hide behind a cool, clinical exterior, yet grapple with internal insecurities, fears and disappointments. The scientific mind is eager to find truth; indeed, the very pursuit energizes scientists from a plethora of disciplines and backrounds. This book was compiled for them. It contains not only "scientific" inquiries into the miraculous, but personal and poignant travels on the road to serenity. Over 40 PhD's in this book explore the linkage between science and faith, and what that means not only to individuals, but to the entire planet as well. If you are a friend who wants to introduce your scientist friend to God, then you've found the perfect gift with this book. If you are a skeptic, have a read. You'll be amazed that you've taken this path in your search for truth. In this book, perhaps you too can find rest from this hard business called life.
Publishers Description Powerful testimonies from the team who brought In Six Days Perfect for those with intellectual barriers to the gospel Includes Ph.D.'s from the natural and social sciences The best-selling book, In Six Days, gave the accounts of 50 doctorate-holding scientists and why they affirm their belief in a literal six-day creation. The success of that book demanded a sequel, and it has arrived. On the Seventh Day is a collection of essays by 42 doctorate-holding scientists who have a firm belief in God and explain how their knowledge of science backs and confirms their faith. A perfect book for the agnostic or the Christian who's not quite sure, this book will help fortify and strengthen the faith of those who read it. The men and women featured in this book pursue various academic interests, including physics, chemistry, biology, engineering, medicine, and psychology. From John R. de Laeter 's explorations of physics, to Werner Gitt 's fascinating studies of information systems, this book will reach an audience that many have considered unreachable.
