Product Description

The church disagreed with Galileo. That set off controversy that rages on today. The passion remains but the issues have changed and the arguments have become more complex. Do miracles conflict with scientific laws? How did the universe begin? Does the creation story in Genesis conflict with evolution? Hummel sets these controversies in historical perspective by telling the fascinating stories of Copernicus, Kepler, Galileo and Newton. Through their eyes we see how science flourished and floundered under the infuence of the church, setting the scene for modern conflicts. Then Hummel turns to the Bible, discussing its relationship to science, the place of miracles and the biblical accounts of the origin of the universe. His treatment of modern controversies is respectful and fair-minded. Yet he does not hesitate to criticize the views of others and argue for his own.
