Overview

The God Who Would Be Known: Revelations of the Divine in Contemporary Science

Now available in paperback, this positive work is for all who ponder the mystery and wonder of our universe-and the God who plans and oversees it. Probing the philosophical and theological impact of scientific discoveries, the authors urge us to adopt an analytical and open posture toward both science and religion. In the spirit of Sir Francis Bacon, this fascinating exploration shows us how "the book of God's works" (natural science) can tell us a great deal about "the book of God's words" (Scripture).
