This book is a resource for those with a curiosity about science and religion. Henry believes the relationship of Christianity to science can best be handled by isolating images of science that influence Christianity. He defines and then reformulates those images, making science more intelligible and Christianity more biblical.
"In this book a deeply Christian scholar who has devoted a career to teaching mathematics and science shows in rich detail that the clash between science and the Bible is unnecessary, the crisis resolvable. Students of the sciences and millions of Christians troubled by the apparent tensions can find assurance and inspiration in this beautifully written and thoroughly reasoned book."
