I just received an email from Homeschool.com promoting a yet to be released new book entitled “Dictionary of Christianity and Science” by Paul Copan, Tremper Longman III, Christopher L. Reese, Michael Strauss General Editors. (Available April 2017)
The book features the work of over 140 international contributors and is a deeply-researched, peer-reviewed, fair-minded work that illuminates the intersection of science and Christian belief. It answers many difficult questions surrounding the Christian faith and the study of science?
Questions like: How does Christian theology relate to scientific inquiry? What is the real age of the earth? Is climate change real? What about the flood in Genesis and the big bang theory?
If your family is looking for science materials and resources you can trust, the “Dictionary of Christianity and Science” may be just what you’ve been looking for.
