)-- If 3,500 years of scientific progress can't help modern Christians figure out Genesis, then how could the ancient Israelites possibly have understood it so well? Entering the ongoing debates about creation and evolution, Gordon J. Glover offers a fresh perspective in Beyond the Firmament: Understanding Science and the Theology of Creation, the new book from Watertree Press.
Libraries are full of books about creation, evolution, intelligent design, but few attempt to integrate science and theology into a single worldview that doesn’t sacrifice one for the sake of the other. The few books that are written from this perspective are often quite academic and can quickly drown their readers in a sea of technical and theological jargon. Beyond the Firmament provides an accessible discussion for those who struggle with the relationship between faith and science.
Beyond the Firmament has been hailed as “energetic, well-researched, and constructive” by Brian McLaren, author and Christian activist. P. Andrew Sandlin, President of the Center for Cultural Leadership, declared Beyond the Firmament to be “a thoughtful treatment of the issues surrounding origins as seen from an intentionally and distinctly Christian perspective.”
