Faith & Science, a Dad's viewpoint
March 27, 2012
The numbers on Christian kids who fall away from the Faith when they are exposed to science is pretty scary. It is easy to scapegoat "liberal professors", but the author suggests we take another look at what we teach our children first. Sigmond Brouwer walks through scientific and theological issues carefully and at a level anyone can follow. His conclusion is that we need not put stumbling blocks in the path of our kids. Science and faith do not need to be incompatable and in fact, an better knowledge of science can point towards the Creator.
Here we were expecting a book which would truly affirm the biblical truths of Genesis and were disappointed to read that Brouwer has a theistic evolutionist point of view. Were also taken aback at the smug way it was presented as if only those who are simple minded would actually believe that God created in 6 days. As if only the simple minded would believe that the universe and everything in it came to be in a short period of time. Many credible Christian scientists through their work have only become more certain of the complete truth of Genesis 1-3. Unfortunately Brouwer has used the evolutionistic worldview and its reasonings to explain Genesis rather than starting from God's Word and then with His worldview begun to understand the magnificant wonder and beauty of Gods creation. Isn't our God great? Why would we doubt His ability to do what He said He did? If we doubt Genesis 1-3 or even parts of it don't we also have to doubt His omnipotence today and His complete work of salvation? We pray that few will be taken in by what this book has to offer.
The author writes in a way that helps the reader really understand the controversies that have existed between science and faith communities for years. This is a must-read for parents of children in public schools - our struggle to preserve our faith in this arena might not be as hard as we thought.
