Item description for Scientists Who Believe: 21 Tell Their Own Stories by Eric Charles Barrett & David Fisher...

Science and the Christian faith. For centuries, men have hotly debated the relationship between the two. Do they confirm and support one another? Or do their very natures contradict one another? To most of us, however, the questions of critical concern are more practical. Do modern scientific discoveries contradict Scripture? Can a scientist honestly profess faith in a Supreme Being or in a Creator? Can a Christian student study science without threatening his faith? Is it possible to follow both pursuits without compromising the essentials of either? The stories of twenty-one scientists answer those questions more eloquently than any philosophical treatise. Here are men and women who have achieved career fulfillment in scientific fields, yet found further fulfillment through faith in Jesus Christ. They have not found the two contradictory in the slightest degree. In fact, for most, their Christian faith is a product of their scientific studies-and their further studies and insights are a product of their faith. Their stories will answer your questions on a deeply practical level-whether you are a scientist, student, or layman.

DAVID FISHER is a missionary radio broadcaster working jointly with Trans World Radio and the Slavic Gospel Association. He is director and editor-in-chief of Radio Academy of Science (RADAS). Fisher believed that scientific atheism was preventing many from accepting Christ, so he began writing scripts for a broadcast which countered atheistic spins on scientific issues, and included interviews with believers professionally involved in the sciences.

He is co-author of "Scientists Who Believed" with Eric Barrett."

Reviews - What do customers think about Scientists Who Believe: 21 Tell Their Own Stories?

Debunking the Myths about Scientists  Mar 18, 2008
As a science teacher, this is one of my favorite books to give to those who believe that 1)all scientists hate God and are therefore bad or 2)any good scientist would never believe in such garbage as the Bible. This book is filled with the personal accounts of scientists who are tops in their fields but who also believe in God and in the Bible. This is a fascinating read. Since each scientist is shown with his or her own chapter, it is an easy read. Highly recommended.
Serious short comings!  Apr 13, 2007
Problems within the text:
1. Only 1 of 21 stories actually mentioned Christian faith effecting the way they perform their science.
2. When each person talk about their conversions one of three things were always present. Personal or family struggle, a social system that had betrayed them, or they were to young to make an educated decision on what to believe.
3. Misrepresented data, e.g. thermodynamic laws issue, order in the universe, scientific constants, the historical person of Jesus, Einsteinian god, and Pascale's wager. All of these things have been debunked by the vast majority of the scientific community.
4. Softball questions. None of the questions posed by RADAS were even close to thought provoking.

Things I liked in the text:
1. I thought before I read the book that compartmentalization was necessary to perform good science. 20 of 21 confirmed my suspicion. It was overwhelmingly obvious that to be credible in science in is important to have facts, not faith.

Overall I expected alot more from this book, too bad.
Forgotten truth wisdom began with scripture  Mar 8, 2007
The truth about US universities is they were often seminaries, first. Brilliant minds emerged from the likes of Haravard, Yale, William and Mary, Notre Dame, etc. Most scientists, Robert Boyle, Michael Farraday, the Wright brothers, Leonardo DaVinci, etc. were Christians and sought their knowledge from the wisdom of God. The "Scientists Who Believe: 21 Tell Their Own Stories" carry the historical mandate to show God's glory in the scientific world He made. These 21 scientific Christians explain how true science always proves the God's mastery in Creation. Their scientific discoveries brought them to a stronger faith and desire to extoll His glory through their continued work. This is excellent reading for youth from age 10 through college. Scientific method is logically employed, as well as explanations of trials in the process.
