Collins investigates specific topics of "conflict" between faith and science, including the age of the earth and evolution. Written for parents, students and for anyone interested in the interplay between science and faith.
"Collins maps the entire interface between faithful biblical interpretation and questions of all sorts posed in the name of the sciences. Interesting, fair-minded, shrewd, and clear from start to finish, this will prove outstanding as a pastoral resource." -J. I. Packer, Board of Governors' Professor of Theology, Regent College "There is something here for just about everyone. Science and Faith is required reading for all who are interested in the relationship between science and the Christian faith." -J. P. Moreland, Distinguished Professor of Philosophy, Biola University; author, The Soul: How We Know It's Real and Why It Matters "This is a highly significant book on possibly the most important subject confronting the church today-the neutrality of science. A delightful style makes it easily accessible yet the author never neglects important issues. It is the best book of its kind for decades." -Ranald Macaulay, Speaker, L'Abri Fellowship; Coordinator, Christian Heritage, Cambridge "Jack Collins is my kind of guy-a fellow MIT nerd. But he is much more: a brilliant scholar of biblical languages and a keen observer of the interaction between science and the Christian faith. This is a wonderful book, and I recommend it most strongly." -Henry F. Schaefer III, Professor of Chemistry and Director of the Center for Computational Quantum Chemistry, University of Georgia
