New book from Dr. Lamoureux

08 September 2020

Dr. Denis Lamoureux, SJC's Professor of Science & Religion, has just published a new book, The Bible and Ancient Science.

Over half of Americans believe science and religion are in conflict. Theologian and scientist Denis O. Lamoureux suggests that a common assumption of biblical interpretation fuels this struggle. Many Christians think Scripture is supposed to align with science in some sort of way. This idea is known as "scientific concordism" (or simply "concordism"). But Lamoureux demonstrates that the Bible has an ancient science. During the inspiration of Scripture, the Holy Spirit came down to the level of the biblical writers and allowed them to use the science-of-the-day as a vessel for delivering life-changing, inerrant spiritual truths. Dr. Lamoureux explains how moving beyond concordism leads to a peaceful and God-honoring relationship between modern science and our Christian faith.

The author will be doing an online Q&A about the book via Zoom in the near future (stay tuned for details). In the meantime, you can buy a copy on Amazon and start reading it!
