My latest interest is in the dialogue between science and faith – Christian faith in particular. I’m currently reading Dallas Willard’s latest – Knowing Christ Today – Why We Can Trust Spiritual Knowledge. Dr. Willard is a great writer and I am learning a lot. I’ve had to read some chapters a couple of times to get a deep understanding. Why is it that we can trust our spiritual knowledge? Why is it any less valid than scientific knowledge?
I wonder how he will deal with the question of trusting biblical knowledge? I wonder how you explain and/or reconcile Biblical creation with the Big Bang? Our church just watched a Ken Hamm video that claimed there were dinosaurs in the Bible. I don’t believe it – the arguments are weak, but I’m still anxious to get to the questions of Biblical inerrancy. Was there really a flood? Was the Earth created in 6 days? Were Adam & Eve the first people?
As always – I am interested in other perspectives.
