A Reformed Approach to Science and Scripture, A New Free eBook from Keith Mathison

from Dec 03, 2013 Category: Ligonier Resources

How old is the universe?” This question was raised during our 2012 National Conference and Dr. R.C. Sproul gave a brief and insightful response. In the summer of that year we asked Dr. Keith Mathison if he could pen a blog series to expand on Dr. Sproul’s comments. Given the importance of the subject matter and the response that series received, Dr. Mathison agreed to turn his work into a short book that we have decided to exclusively publish digitally as a free downloadable eBook.

I am grateful for Keith Mathison’s treatment of these matters in this book—not only for his kind defense of my position (which is not original with me) but for his lucid exposition of the issues faced today in apparent conflicts between religion and science. Keith provides the necessary foundation for resolving these issues.” —R.C. Sproul

In A Reformed Approach to Science and Scripture, Dr. Mathison briefly introduces us to a topic that has long been a subject of debate, aiming to equip Christians with a clear foundation so that they may approach questions and discussions pertaining to science and Scripture with grace, humility, and patience.

Christians have absolutely nothing to fear ultimately from scientific research,” says Dr. Mathison. “If scientists discover something about God’s creation that is actually true, it will not and cannot ultimately contradict the Scriptures when they are properly interpreted.”
