Amy Hall from Stand To Reason posted a series of articles this week entitled Christianity As Science-Starter. There are three, and they deal with Kepler, Galileo, and Newton. Her inspiration is a book called Saving Leonardo: A Call to Resist the Secular Assault on Mind, Morals, and Meaning, by Nancy Pearcey. In this series, she reminds us that science was started by God fearing Christians who believed that the universe, as created by God, follows a master plan that is predictable and discoverable. It is not the results of random chance.
While I can’t recommend the book–I haven’t read it–I can recommend the articles:
- Christianity As Science-Starter: Kepler
- Christianity As Science-Starter: Galileo
- Christianity As Science-Starter: Newton
Looks like another book to add to my reading list.
