9781592555734: Origins: Christian Perspectives on Creation, Evolution, and Intelligent Design

When it comes to the history of the universe, many believe that science and faith are mutually exclusive. But in this revised version of Origins, physics professors Loren and Deborah Haarsma explore what God's Word and God's world teach us about creation, evolution, and intelligent design.

Clearly explaining the science, the authors focus on areas where Christians agree. They also present the strengths and weaknesses of areas where Christians differ.

Origins helps you develop a deeper understanding of the origins of the universe and sort out your own views on faith and science. Small group discussion questions follow each chapter. A companion website provides resources for further study.

About the Author:

Loren and Deborah Haarsma are professors in the physics and astronomy department at Calvin College, Grand Rapids, Michigan. Deborah researches galaxies and cosmology; Loren studies electrical activity of nerve cells. Together they have explored the science and theology of origins, speaking at numerous conferences, colleges, and churches.

Review:

"The Haarsmas approach this very controversial topic with a perfect mix of scientifically and biblically accurate information, theological depth, intellectual modesty, and a charitable spirit toward views they do not share themselves. Pastors, laypeople, and scientists will all find much to value here." --Edward B. Davis, Distinguished Professor of the History of Science, Messiah College

"Origins, Revised presents a perspective on origins of the universe, the earth, life on earth, and of humans that is faithful to the Bible and to science. In an easy to understand style of writing, the Haarsmas' provide a valuable resource for schools, churches, and anyone interested in origins." --Randall D Isaac, Executive Director, American Scientific Affiliation

"The Haarsmas provide a comprehensive perspective on science and its challenges viewed through a lens of firm belief in God, which illuminates the issues and offers straight ways forward. Christians will be encouraged by their faithful and convincing approach." --Daniel M. Harrell, PhD, Senior minister of Colonial Church, Edina, Minnesota, Author of "Nature's Witness: How Evolution Can Inspire Faith"
