A scientist examines the inherent limitations of scientific truth and shows us why biblical truth is the only authority that can be completely trusted. For many people, science can be a seductive alternative to biblical truth--but how trustworthy are the truth claims of science? Nigel Brush, a scientist and a Christian, shows how science is only one avenue for seeking truth and how the conclusions it derives are not greater than truths acquired by other means. In this penetrating analysis of scientific inquiry, Brush examines the boundaries of scientific truth and provides reassurance that we can hold to limited scientific truth--as long as it is coupled with the absolute truth found in God's Word.
"Brush argues clearly, concisely and convincingly that science has its limitations. Brush does not attack science or disprove science. In fact, he affirms the great value of science. But, Brush points out that science is unable to answer life's ultimate questions: 'Why am I here?' . . . .The Limitations of Scientific Truth will assist the believer to properly understand the value and role of modern science."--Chris Reeves"Book Marks" (09/01/2006) "Brush seeks to eliminate the fear of science for the Christian, and instead to offer the alternative perspective of science as a tool. He makes a great case for scientific value while noting that science does not provide absolute truth, is not superior truth, and should not dictate doctrine. There is something for everyone in this book. It's a great study book, a challenging read, and a perfect resource for discussion and detail."--Carolyn R. Scheidies"Author's Choice Reviews" (01/03/2006) Brush has given us a primer on scientific data from astronomy, to biology, to quantum theory, to cosmology, and other areas. His book is a wonderful resource to have at one's fingertips. He has also given to me, a new assurance, a stronger affirmation that the Word of God is with us to assist into the journey of absolute truth as no other evidence can. Science and philosophy can assist us on the journey, but it is only the Word of God that can truly bring us to the absolute truth: God is found in Jesus Christ through the Holy Spirit of the Living God. Do we need to fear science and philosophy? No! When it is understood that they are tools, and servants of God to help us to know truth, then there is nothing to fear. Christians need to remember, all truth is truth from God, no matter where that truth is found. Thus, we are liberated. Science is not a threat to our faith, because the evidence shows that science cannot produce absolute. truth. I hope that Brush's book is well received and that the word is spread about this work. It is truly worth the reading and the sharing and the confidence that will grow in the believer's life from spending time with this marvelous work.--G.
