Synopsis: Modern science and science-based technology have changed traditional understandings of the world in profound ways. A pastor who is also a trained scientist draws on his diverse background to help readers put today's scientific knowledge in the context of Christian faith. Murphy sees the world described by today's science as the creation of God revealed in Jesus Christ, and technology and modern medicine as ways to carry out God's purpose for the world. This book is a useful tool for introducing readers to the crucial conversations and interactions now occurring between the fields of science, theology, technology, and ethics. It's a clear and accessible text that's appropriate for adult classes and lay groups of all levels.

This comprehensive and readable work by a well-qualified and experienced scientist, theologian, and pastor fills a very important gap in the current literature regarding the new dialogue that has been emerging in recent years between science and religion.... It seeks to develop a Christian view of the world that is congruent with modern science. It includes discussions of the practical and moral implications of issues such as genetic engineering and medicine, and their implications for worship and prayer.
