David M. Barker Pens Nonfiction Book on Religion and Science

Genre: Non-fiction (religion and science)
ISBN: 9781625103796

Reviewed by Ted Cox originally for Amazon

Best read for me so far regarding the apparent conflicts between scriptural stories and science - terrific book! I consider myself "well read" when it comes to books trying to reconcile religion and science -- this is the best one I have read by far. Well documented and researched, the author clearly explains how "apparent" differences between science and the stories of the Bible can be reconciled by understanding well documented research and theories that demonstrate how the scriptural accounts can also be supported by scientific application. I never realized how many theories regarding geology, carbon dating, archaeology and so forth that are accepted by the scientific community and the general public as "undeniable truth" are in fact based on assumptions that have yet to be proved. I recommend you read this book and decide for yourself. You will find this book well written, enlightening and thought provoking.
