Science, especially naturalistic science, no longer commands the near universal respect it once held. From fresh attacks on Darwinism and arguments for intelligent design, to deep doubts about objective truth, scientific or otherwise, Del Ratzsch sets out to develop an account of science that fits well with Christian commitment.
Ratzsch asks and answers, what is science? What can it tell us? What can't it tell us? What challenges does it offer to Christian faith? How should a Christian respond?
