What can science teach us about God? How can Christians have better conversations about faith and science, and what are the things that we need to be aware of in the faith and science conversation? Is there powerful evidence for a Creator in the natural sciences?
It’s been said that God has two books: the Bible and nature (or special revelation and general revelation). Today on the podcast, we’re talking about what that second “book” can teach us about God. What has God revealed to us through the world around us? Jonathan talked to Melissa Cain Travis, professor and author of the book Science and the Mind of the Maker: What the Conversation Between Faith and Science Reveals About God. Join us this week as we answer these questions and discuss the fine tuning of the universe, powerful evidence that points to a Creator, how Christians can talk well about faith and science, and even how mathematics fits into the equation (get it?).
