Modern Science in the Bible: Amazing Scientific Truths Found in Ancient Texts

Front Cover
Simon and Schuster, Feb 8, 2011 - Religion - 288 pages
1 Review
Modern Science in the Bible shows that the Bible is not out-of-date, but that it was, in fact, thousands of years ahead of science when it was written. Used as a reference tool or merely to underline the trustworthiness of the Bible, this book succinctly demonstrates hard scientific facts from the Bible that modern science has only recently discovered.

Ben Hobrink, although a biologist, writes in layman’s terms to describe current scientific debates and shows where scientific theories or conclusions differ from the Bible and offers explanations of the alleged differences. In Modern Science in the Bible, Hobrink not only defends the Bible; he lets others share his astonishment about the relevance of biblical rules. The book underlines the reliability of the Bible in the field of science and presents hard scientific facts that are structured around themes such as combating epidemics, hygiene, nutrition, and evolution.
