This book is a must-read for all who wonder about the future of vital, classical Christian faith in the face of challenges from contemporary science, especially concerning the nature of human beings. Donald H. Wacome’s welcome approach to reconciling science and Christian faith combines humility and forthrightness, and is imbued with the sort of practical wisdom urgently needed, and too often lacking, in these discussions.
Many partisans of science are convinced that any alliance with religion will amount to a blot on the family escutcheon. Friends of religion, on the other hand, may worry that theology is being asked to make too many concessions to her aggressive partner. Readers of Wacome’s book will inevitably be caught up in these quarrels, and will learn a lot in the process. Recommended for all who are concerned about the religion-science interface.
