ABOUT THE BOOK

Many people tend to treat religion and science as separate belief systems when it comes to discussing how our world and universe came to be and other supposedly Biblical phenomena.

Scientific Challenges to Evolutionary Theory: How These Challenges Affect Religion by Jay Schabacker shares various pieces of research discussing the differences between Creationism and Evolutionism. Schabacker then shows how these different schools of thought may be more similar than most people think.

In this well-researched read, Schabacker shares studies about how people of scientific inquiry can still be faithful Christian devotees and discusses what it means to believe in miracles.
