Where the Conflict Really Lies: Science, Religion, and Naturalism
by Alvin Plantinga
(376 pages, $27.95, hardcover)
Increasingly over the last two decades, Christians have made great strides in taking back science from those who would misuse it as a tool for fostering a naturalistic view of the universe that renders God either non-existent or irrelevant to life on planet earth. Tired of meekly submitting to the oft-repeated but erroneous claim that unguided Darwinian macro-evolution has been "proven," a growing number of Christian academics have thrown down the gauntlet, calling upon materialist scientists to account for the Big Bang, the fine-tuning of the universe, the Cambrian explosion, the irreducible complexity of molecular machines, and the front-loaded, information-rich nature of DNA.
