Publisher's Description

This is a print on demand book and is therefore non- returnable.

Drawing on both scriptural evidence and scientific investigation, Van Till constructs a theologically sound and scientifically coherent perspective on the nature of the cosmos. Since evolution and creation deal with distinctly different questions, he argues, both concepts can be taught with integrity — as complementary views of the universe and its history.

Editorial Reviews

— Journal of the American Scientific Affiliation
"An admirable treatment of all the major science/theology issues involved with the Christian attitude toward creation and evolution. Van Till essentially avoids every pitfall of definition or semantics, and provides for the reader a clear and readily understood summary of the informed evangelical position today — a position dedicated to the upholding of authentic biblical theology and authentic science. The book deserves wide dissemination and attention by both the Christian and scientific community."

— Lutheran Journal
"Van Till's high respect for Scripture as the authoritative revelation of God and his thorough acquaintance with contemporary science make this book a valuable contribution to the current debates over the relationship between Christianity and science."

— The Banner
"A book with obvious strengths. Part I contains solid information on the cosmological views of Israel's pagan neighbors and the scriptural teachings about the heavens. Part II is a tour through the cosmos through the eyes of a scientist who has not lost his wonder amid the mass of information. Part III includes a good analysis of the creation/evolution debate and some excellent suggestions on how both creation and evolution can be taught in both public and Christian schools. . . . Van Till's perspective deserves careful attention by educators, scientists, ministers, and theologians. I recommend it to those without scientific or theological training, but they should read it carefully and thoughtfully, perhaps in a group context."

— Library Journal
"This readable and informative attempt to reconcile Scripture and science while avoiding (and yet lucidly explaining) the pitfalls of Creation Science is highly recommended."

— Presbyterian Journal
"This good book should be of interest to all who marvel at God's great work in creating the heavens and the earth, or to put it another way, the cosmos. . . . The author's faith, humility, and sense of humor come through in his knowledgeable grappling with the topics."
