Over the next couple of months (meaning: years), I’ll be reading these books and reviewing them in this series. Many of them look to be promising: the first one is already very good; I’m about a third of the way through.
Science and Grace: God’s Reign in the Natural Sciences
Tim Morris and Don Petcher
Already a wonderful read – and I’m not even out of the background information yet. Couple of Reformed guys, always good stuff.
Evolution and Christian Faith
Dr. Bolton Davidheiser
This is definitely one of the pioneering works of modern creationism. Dr. Davidheiser (former evolutionist) wrote this at a time when very little creationism literature was available. Thanks to his work, and others like him, we now have a plethora of books and other resources to help us. Plus, you can get this on Amazon for about two bucks.
In Whom We Live and Move and Have Our Being: Panentheistic Reflections on God’s Presence in a Scientific World
Philip Clayton and Arthur Peacocke
Panentheism is the belief that God’s presence extends throughout every fiber of the universe. In the words of Abraham Kuyper: “[T]here is not a square inch in the whole domain of our human existence over which Christ, who is Sovereign over all, does not cry: ‘Mine!’”
This is a collection of essays on personhood. Should be a fun read, especially in the light that there may be differing perspectives within.
Science and the Study of God: A Mutuality Model for Theology and Science
Mr. Alan G. Padgett
From the title, sounds a bit dualist/deist. Especially considering it’s written by an UMC minister. Despite this, still on the list, and probably some good stuff in here.
How to Relate Science and Religion: A Multidimensional Model
Again, sounds a bit deist. But again, remains to be seen.
Evolution and Ethics: Human Morality in Biological and Religious Perspective
Philip Clayton and Jeffery Schloss
I’m not sure this book is a hardcore case for creationism – but Philip Clayton has already appeared on this list, so it’s promising.
