Product Description

Science is often presented as a set of propositions to affirm. On those terms, the existence of God becomes yet another such proposition, and all science can offer is a yes or a no. Andy Walsh thinks science offers more.

By enriching our language with new concepts, science can help us know God, rather than merely know of him. This is the pattern established in the Bible; the psalmists, the prophets, the epistle writers, they all use language about nature to help us understand God. Even Jesus relied on metaphors from the natural world when he wanted to explain the kingdom of God.

Faith across the Multiverse explores concepts from contemporary science to illuminate scripture and reveal more about the God who has unfurled the multiverse. Sections of the book cover metaphors and parables from mathematics, physics, biology, and computer science.

Endorsements

"Every once in a while, a book comes along that breaks out of all categories. It just doesn't fit. It makes you laugh and argue and wonder and worship. The writing is clever, generating chuckles on a regular basis. The cultural and theological references sprinkled throughout excite. And the insights are so frequent you wonder how any one person could combine so many great ideas in such creative ways! Andy Walsh's book - the book you're holding right now - is a category breaker. I heartily recommend it!"
- Thomas Jay Oord, author of The Uncontrolling Love of God

"Andy Walsh is an expert at communicating across multiple disciplines. By combining images from science, faith and popular culture, he has done a brilliant job of bringing to life and shedding light on some notoriously difficult concepts."
- Barry Luokkala, Teaching Professor of Physics, Carnegie Mellon University
