Many people perceive tension — and sometimes even hostility — between faith and science. But there’s more agreement than many realize.
As laypersons we sometimes wonder if we know enough about science or religion to ask the right questions of either.
As scientists we may welcome serious conversations but wonder if others tilt more toward controversy or more toward truth.
As pastors we often keep silent on science, because we don’t know what to say or because we don’t want to engage or escalate unwanted debates.
Now there’s a resource to inspire and inform your evangelical voice with trusted insight as you explore the surprising discoveries of agreement.
Meet the Authors
