Faith, Science & Reason $35.00
The raging controversies over the compatibility of the Christian Faith and modern science that have divided public opinion have swirled around the introduction of theological ideas and intepretation into science textbooks in public schools, creating a confusion of categories and methodology that threatens to handicap both science education and authentic theological instruction. In this pioneering textbook designed for Catholic high schools and colleges, theologian and author Christopher Baglow takes a different approach – the inclusion of science in a theology textbook for the purpose of rediscovering faith on the frontiers of science. The result is a stunning reconsideration of the relationship that delivers new insights into the Christian Faith while preserving the integrity, and the astounding heritage, of modern science.
A sample of the chapter titles reveals the comprehensiveness of Baglow's treatment and gives a sample of his easy, accessible style:
