“Science and Religion: The Myth of Conflict”
Many have claimed that modern science and the Christian Faith are inherently opposed and can never be reconciled. Prof. Barr shows that the real conflict is not between Christian belief and modern science, but between all forms of religious faith and a deeply flawed view of reality called scientific materialism. Combining history, philosophy, theology, and science, Barr shows that the great scientific discoveries of the last century provide a picture of the universe that is wonderfully compatible with traditional Christianity.
