1. A video, “Does God Exist?” produced by Focus on the Family.  Classroom setting with content delivered by Stephen C. Meyer.

2. A book, “The Lost World of Genesis One: Ancient Cosmology and the Origins Debate” by John H. Walton.

Good article about why Christian students do not go into the sciences.  Once again I am amazed at the worldviews that we in the Evangelical community hold onto.  Why are we failing to do the hard work of integrating science and Christian faith?  They can be integrated!

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.
