Science and faith should be allies, not opponents, in the search for truth. But when it comes to understanding the very beginnings of life, it is no easy task to reconcile the history taught in the Bible with the discoveries of the scientific community.
Author Tim Stafford watched the tension between the beliefs of Darwin and the teaching of Genesis shake the faith of his family, ruin friendships and leave Christians in the field of science feeling as though the doors of the church were closed to their profession.
He believes this civil war can stop. The scientific record and the truth of the Bible arent mutually exclusive. The Adam Quest offers a compelling new look at the beginnings of life as Stafford puts questions of dinosaurs, genealogy and the age of the earth to eleven world-class scientists.
A sweeping book-touching everything from advances in genetics to a particle physicist striving to become Anglican priest, Stafford uses the stories and journeys of these remarkable men and women to provide a new diversity of answers. Scientific progress is carefully detailed, while the struggle toward truth and toward God is humanised.
A deeply informative look at Christians working in science, this book is for both believers and those who harbor doubts an intersection of faith and science, and a safe place for questions. Whether you believe in a young earth, intelligent design, evolutionary creationism, or something else, The Adam Quest offers a chance to strengthen your faith, deepen your knowledge, and bring science back into the church.
