The Introduction to Christianity and Science Video Lectures offers a thorough introduction to the intersection between science and Christian belief. How does Christian theology relate to scientific inquiry? What are the competing philosophies of science, and do they "work" with a Christian faith based on the Bible?
Designed to accompany the Dictionary of Christianity and Science, this lecture set synthesizes the insights of over 140 international contributors. Each lesson in the Introduction to Christianity and Science Video Lectures, presented by scholars Paul Copan, Tremper Longman III, Christopher L. Reese, and Michael G. Strauss, includes reliable summaries and critical analyses of relevant concepts, theories, terms, movements, individuals, and debates. The toughest questions about faith and science, from Adam and Eve to the age of the earth, miracles, and evolution, are explored, along with concepts such as string theory and multiverse.
