The subject of science and the Bible has recently experienced a surge of popularity. The proliferation of knowledge within the last few decades has led many people to ask: Are there any implications of these recent scientific findings for the person who believes in God.?
Fossils and Faith demonstrates the profound implications of modern science for religious belief. Professor Nathan Aviezer emphasizes that faith in God and accepting the truth of the Bible do not require the abandonment of rational thinking. Quite the contrary. Aviezer shows that scientific findings have become important tools for understanding many Biblical passages and for deepening one's faith.
Fossils and Faith deals with the very essence of religion - faith, prayer, miracles, free will, the creation of mankind, genetic engineering, life on other planets, chaos, the interaction between God and the world - showing how recent advances in science touch on each of these subjects in important ways.
The complexity and subtlety of the physical universe, revealed within the last few decades, provide the framework for understanding the modes of interaction between God and His world. The reader will discover how modern science imparts new insights and deeper meaning into the eternal words of the Torah.
