[This book] serves to emphasize the central role of evidence, rather than blind faith in religion as well as in science. - Russell Stannard Does scientific evidence give credence to religious belief? Ted Burge, a highly respected physicist in the United Kingdom, draws on his background in the fields of science and theology to address the issue. The book begins with an analysis of evidence found in the text of the Bible in different translations, proceeds to an examination of interpretations of the Old and New Testaments, and then looks at evidence from the sciences, including archeological findings, geological mappings, and carbon-dating, alongside data from the arts, hymns, literature, and historians' testimonies. Evidence is presented on: Physical, geological and biological evolution, and their relation to the Genesis story of creation Original sin, the origin of death, and the immortality of the soul, as described in Babylonian and other stories, including the Flood and the Tower of Babel The resurrection and ascension of Jesus, incarnation and atonement Free will and the nature of love Miracles as described in the Bible The evolution of belief Meditation and prayer as a "conscious interchange of thoughts with God" Knowledge of science is knowledge of God's creation and often helps to identify some of the things we can say about God, the author points out. I enthusiastically recommend [this book] to openminded inquirers. Burge's wide-ranging account is both scientifically and historically informed, and he lays out his carefully developed perspective with a compelling humility. -Owen Gingerich, Professor of Astronomy and History of Science, Harvard-Smithsonian Center for Astrophysics
