"What a young potential scientist needs at the beginning of learning the craft is an experienced, broadly informed and, above all, honest guide. Walter Hearn is just such a guide, and Being a Christian in Science aptly and personally conveys his wisdom. Hearn deflates misconceptions--both those held by the academy and those held by the church--and underlines the truly important. This book is perfect for college students and for senior scientists. It glorifies God."
—Terry Morrison, director of faculty ministries, InterVarsity Christian Fellowship of the USA
"Written by a respected scholar and wordsmith extraordinaire, Being a Christian in Science offers a treasure for those building toward careers in the scientific enterprise."
—Karen Longman, vice president for professional development & research, Coalition for Christian Colleges and Universities
"Reformation-based churches profess that all truth is God's truth, yet few give as much encouragement to young people going into scientific fields as to those going into the mission field. This book helps redress the balance. An introduction to serving God in the study of nature."
—Nancy R. Pearcey, author of The Soul of Science: Christian Faith and Natural Philosophy
"Walter Hearn's book should be required reading for every Christian who is entering (or has entered) the scientific arena. His book sparkles with encouragement, penetrating analysis, sage advice, unforgettable real-life illustrations, and insightful synthesis of the greatest contributions of our time on the topic of being a Christian in science."
—Tom Woodward, Professor of Science and Crosscultural Studies, Trinity College of Florida and Dallas Theological Seminary (Tampa Extension)
"Addressed to young Christians contemplating a career in science, Walt Hearn's book frankly confronts a gamut of relevant issues, yet avoids doctrinaire judgments. Hearn has packed it with specific suggestions and situations from his own experience as an evangelical Christian. I found his judicious and thoughtful reflections very helpful."
—Owen Gingerich, Professor of Astronomy and History of Science, Harvard-Smithsonian Center for Astrophysics
