Author(s): John D. Weaver
The SCM Core Text, "Christianity & Science" provides an advanced introduction to the lively debate between the relative truth claims made by science and the absolute truth claims made by religions, and Christianity in particular.
John Weaver examines the interaction between science and the Christian faith and explores the place of faith in an age of science. Weaver, himself a scientist, explores the responses of the Christian faith to scientific advances, particularly as they impinge upon an understanding of God and human nature.
Contemporary issues such as cloning, stem cell research, GM crops, global climate change and ecological destruction, new research on the origins of life and the issue of suffering brought about by 'natural evil' such as the Boxing Day tsunami, are covered in this accessible and student-friendly textbook.
It is designed to communicate information clearly and accessibly, using chapter summaries, diagrams and questions for further reading as well as suggestions for further reading at the close of chapters.
John Weaver is Principal of the South Wales Baptist College in Cardiff. Combining careers as a geologist, Baptist minister and theology tutor, he has continually sought to explore the dialogue between science and theology in ways that help people to make sense of their experience of the world, and the ways in which God can be understood to act.
