Item description for Two Revelations by Lawrence Olsen...
Overview Efforts to reconcile science and religion invariably call on one or both disciplines to compromise their positions. The challenge is to find a compromise that maintains the integrity of both areas. More to the point, science and religion should be able to define their practices and beliefs in such a way that compromise is not needed. Two Revelations: A High View of Science and Scripture addresses this dilemma. Scientific vocabulary and methods are carefully explained, and some pertinent issues are explored. Similarly, the origin of the scriptures and our understanding of inspiration are examined. Dr. Olsen suggests that, with a few caveats, the teachings of science be accepted. He also suggests that the church needs to back away from certain doctrines that have crept in during the last century. This is not a rejection of church teaching, but rather a call to rediscover the essentials of orthodox Christianity.
