Brave New Science: A Challenge to Faith?
"The purpose of this book is to show that scientific discovery, far from replacing God, actually shows how marvellous his hand is in creation. The author looks at such issues as Quantum Mechanics, the Big Bang theory of the origin of the universe, evolution, how the mind works, artificial intelligence, new reproductive techniques, human cloning and stem cells, and the point of pain and suffering." "In a short space the author summarises the major scientific achievements of recent times, providing the ordinary person with an up-to-date overview. Young people will find it very useful as they consider the question of science versus God, but it is to be strongly recommended for anyone of any age with a lively interest in his or her surroundings."--BOOK JACKET.
