Publishers Description Evolution, creation, intelligent design-how did the world begin? With faithfulness to the biblical teaching of a six-day creation, The Physics of Genesis shows how the Creator answers this question in ways more wonderful than we can imagine. God first constructed a blueprint for the universe and then brought that blueprint to life. By examining the first book of the Bible, author Jim Thompson uncovers a text deeply rooted in physics and mathematics, revealing: Genesis anticipated discoveries that are emerging only now at the cutting edge of quantum physics, chaos research, and information theory. The Bible discloses in its number and word patterns deep structures that profoundly shape our world. Quantum theories of time help us understand exactly how Jesus Christ holds together our lives and our world each and every day. Neither a creationism tome nor a scaffold for any theory of evolution, The Physics of Genesis uses the language of physics to describe and analyze exactly how the universe was made and how it works. Its findings encourage the faith of those who want to believe but find Genesis, as they understand it, to be an intellectual barrier to faith. The Physics of Genesis shows that each of us can live daily within a worldview shaped by the Bible and informed by the best of contemporary science. In The Physics of Genesis, the creation-evolution debate is about to change. Rev. Jim Thompson has worked at the interface of science and conservative theology for thirty years. Having served as a mission developer, he is currently a hospice chaplain. Thompson holds a BS degree (summa cum laude) from Portland State University and an MDiv degree from Luther Theological Seminary, withadditional studies at the Graduate Theological Union in Berkeley, California. Married, he has two children and lives in New Mexico. The Physics of Genesis is Thompson's fourth book. He welcomes mail from readers at www.physicsofgenesis.com.
