Item description for Science and the Bible: Evidence-Based Christian Belief by Ted Burge...
Does scientific evidence give credence to religious belief? Ted Burge, a highly respected physicist in the United Kingdom, draws on his background in the fields of science and theology to address the issue.
The book begins with an analysis of evidence found in the text of the Bible in different translations, proceeds to an examination of interpretations of the Old and New Testaments, and then looks at evidence from the sciences, including archeological findings, geological mappings, and carbon-dating, alongside data from the arts, hymns, literature, and historians' testimonies.
Evidence is presented on: Physical, geological, and biological evolution, and their relation to the Genesis story of creationOriginal sin, the origin of death, and the immortality of the soul, as described in Babylonian and other stories, including the Flood and the Tower of BabelThe Resurrection and Ascension of Jesus, Incarnation and AtonementFree will and the nature of loveMiracles as described in the BibleThe evolution of beliefMeditation and prayer as a "conscious interchange of thoughts with God"
Knowledge of science is knowledge of God's creation and often helps to identify some of the things we can say about God, the author points out.
