"Faith Seeking Understanding promotes the idea that one can approach an understanding of God through the study of science. Religious faith and scientific inquiry should not be seen as competitors diametrically opposed to each other but as complementary ways to assist the human quest for knowledge and deeper meaning of existence. Science is viewed primarily as a gift from God." "The author, with his background in both science and theology, provides the reader with an understanding of human participation in God's creation. John Shackleford explores the scientific evidence for a personal, loving God in a positive dialogue between Christian faith and science that will be thought-provoking for college and university students, along with those interested in how science and religious faith intersect."--BOOK JACKET.
