This book is based on Has Science Got Rid of God? which was first released in 2004. That title was over 50,000 words long and heavily footnoted. This new release is just over 27,000 words and has no footnotes. It has also been updated where appropriate and now makes an excellent evangelistic book for anyone who has swallowed the line that science has disposed of God.
There has never been a time when science has had such a massive impact on our lives, and technological progress seems to accelerate every year. Transportation, education, industry, medicine and entertainment are some of the areas in which cutting–edge technology is transforming the way we live. Computer–driven instruments have revolutionized twenty–first century life; there is now more computing power in an average digital wristwatch than there was on the first lunar landing craft in 1969. This has led many to believe that science goes even further and can now provide all the answers to the questions we ask about the nature of the universe and the meaning of human life. It is even claimed by some that in doing this it has either taken God’s place or shown that he does not exist. In this readable and scintillating response best–selling author John Blanchard tackles the issue head–on and uncovers the fundamental flaws in this kind of thinking. While maintaining a high view of science he makes it crystal clear that God remains its true source and sustainer.
John Blanchard shows that the laws of science, far from disproving God, actually rest on divine foundations. Blanchard gives us clear, logical arguments as he presents his case. Lots of quotes and illustrations show us that the author has done much research. He deals carefully with subjects such as evolution and atheism, showing the problems associated with such viewpoints. He also informs the readers of the real nature of the 'Christian Science' movement. I found this to be a very enjoyable read. Helpful for young people, but should appeal to all ages.
