Faith and Science
“You are worthy, our Lord and God, to receive glory and honor and power, for you created all things, and by your will they were created and have their being.”
Christian faith and scholarship go hand in hand. In a unique way, science and mathematics enable reflection on and investigation of the world with rigor, precision, and integrity. God reveals himself to humans in many ways, including through Nature (God’s work) and through the Bible (God’s word). Isaac Newton referred to these as God’s two books: if interpreted properly, both are consistent and compatible.
