Many believers worry that science undermines the Christian faith. Instead of fearing scientific discovery, Jack Collins believes that Christians should delight in the natural world and study it. God's truth will stand against any challenge and will enrich the very scientific studies that we fear.
Collins first defines faith and science, shows their relation, and explains what claims each has concerning truth. Then he applies the biblical teaching on creation to the topics of "conflict" between faith and science, including the age of the earth, evolution, and miracles. He considers what it means to live in a created world. This book is for anyone looking for a Christian engagement with science without technical jargon.

Rev. Tobey Brockman5 Stars Out Of 5June 14, 2004Rev. Tobey BrockmanReaders committed to intellectual honesty and the exploration of some of the most important questions of life and the world we live in, will find in Science & Faith the critical realism and intellectual integrity that makes reading and thinking so enjoyable. Dr. Collins, Professor of Old Testament at Covenant Theological Seminary in St. Louis, Missouri, steers the reader through the critical issues related to the study of God's Word and God's creation, in a thorough yet accessible style. Once begun, a difficult book to put down. But let not your heart be troubled; you will return to it again and again. A must read for those serious about thinking about the world we live in and the God who made it.
