“For since the creation of the world God’s invisible qualities – his eternal power and divine nature – have been clearly seen, being understood from what has been made, so that men are without excuse” (Romans 1:20, NIV).
For centuries, Western culture operated within the context of a Christian worldview. For this reason, the answer to any question was anchored in the belief that God exists and is the Creator and Sustainer of all, and that the Bible is a trustworthy revelation of God. Many of the founders of modern science, including Copernicus, Galileo, Kepler, Pascal, Boyle, Newton, and Halley, were believers of those central concepts.
During the past 200 years, our culture, particularly the scientific community, has been moving away from the Christian worldview, and assuming a naturalistic stance that discounts any supernatural intervention in the origin, functioning, and maintenance of our world. As a result, two opposing philosophical views contend for allegiance today.
Understanding Creation articulates twenty questions about faith and science that Christians often encounter. The co-editors have assembled an international group of experienced scientists, researchers, and thinkers who provide thoughtful answers to these questions. They all share several convictions: the biblical record is an essential component of Christian doctrine; Christian faith and empirical science can work fruitfully together; and our comprehension of truth is progressive.
