Product Description

The debate over the ultimate source of truth in our world often pits science against faith. In fact, many high-profile scientists today say that science has made belief in God unnecessary. In this book, two professional astronomers push back against this notion, arguing that true science doesn't disprove the existence of God and that our notion of truth must include both the physical and spiritual domains. Incorporating excerpts from a letter written by famed astronomer Galileo in 1615, the authors explore the relationship between science and faith, critiquing atheistic and secular understandings of science while reminding Christians that science is an important source of truth about the physical world that God created.
