Publisher's Description

In Faith Seeking Understanding anatomist and theologian John Shackleford explores the scientific evidence for a personal, loving God. He demonstrates that religious faith and scientific inquiry should not be seen as competitors, diametrically opposed to each other, but rather as complementary ways to assist the human quest for knowledge and deeper meaning of existence. And he promotes the idea that the study of science can actually enhance our understanding of God. Rather than seeking to reconcile science and religion as do some works of this genre, the author demonstrates the necessity of science in God's overall strategy for our salvation. The author presents his view of creation as a work of art in progress. Human participation in God's work of art, and the struggle towards its final completion, is necessary if we are to survive as a species. One conclusion of this viewpoint is that a spiritual message lies hidden in the laws of physics and chemistry, and that creation itself is a sacrament of God. Faith Seeking Understanding is a timely work for the debate on the validity of evolutionary theory, intelligent design, and creationism.
