Product Description

Question: What does God have to do with mathematics?

Answer: Everything.

In this book, Vern Poythress argues that the harmony of abstract mathematical truths, the physical world of things, and the personal world of our thinking depends on the existence of the Christian God. Poythress shows that these distinct "perspectives" on mathematics cohere because all three find their origin in God's consistent character and nature.

Whether it's simple addition and subtraction or more complex mathematical concepts such as set theory and the nature of infinity, this fascinating book lays a theistic foundation for all mathematical inquiry.

Poythress (PhD, Harvard University; ThD, University of Stellenbosch) is professor of New Testament interpretation at Westminster Theological Seminary in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, where he has taught for nearly four decades.

Endorsements

Redeeming Mathematics is a valuable addition the growing literature on the relationship between mathematics and Christian belief. Poythress's treatment of three distinct dimensions of mathematics - as transcendent abstract truths, as part of the physical world, and as comprehensible to human beings - is a unique and helpful addition to the conversation on this relationship. The book is accessible to non-specialists, but even those who are well-versed in these matters will find much to interest and challenge them.

-James Bradley,
Professor Emeritus of Mathematics, Calvin College
