How do you continue to find God as dementia pulls your loved one into the darkness? Philosopher Douglas Groothuis offers a window into his experience of caring for his wife as a rare form of dementia ravages her once-brilliant mind. Mixing personal narrative with spiritual insight, he captures moments of lament as well as theological reflection and poignant pictures of their life together.
We can be intellectually satisfied in both science and the Christian faith. In this accessible primer, particle physicist Peter Bussey introduces readers to the mysteries of modern physics and astronomy. He shows that the remarkable achievements of scientific research do not rule out a divine Creator, but actually present us with compelling signposts to God.
In this book a team of expert academics trained in mathematics, engineering, philosophy, physical anthropology, physics, astrophysics, biology and more investigate the prospects for intelligent design. Edited by William Dembski.
Christians confess that God created the heavens and the earth. But just how did he do it, and does the Bible give us a scientifically accurate account? Listen in as representatives from Reasons to Believe (old-earth creation) and BioLogos (evolutionary creation) engage in charitable dialogue on questions of creation and evolution.
The Bible is full of images of God caring for his creation in all its complexity. Yet experts warn us that a so-called perfect storm of factors threatens the future of life on earth. The authors assess the evidence for climate change and other threats that our planet faces in the coming decades while pointing to the hope God offers the world and the people he made.
In this edition of Phillip Johnson's classic book he responds to critics of the first edition and maintains that scientists have put the cart before the horse when it comes to evolution, regarding as scientific fact what really should be regarded as a yet unproved hypothesis. Also included is a new introduction by noted biologist Michael Behe.
What is ID? Why is it controversial? Intelligent design is surrounded by a storm of debate. Proponents and opponents have both sought to have their voices heard above the din. Is it unscientific?

So here to clear things up is Bill Dembski, one of the founders of intelligent design, who joins with Jonathan Witt to answer these questions and more.
Now updated to reflect current discussions of intelligent design and postmodern views of science, this book by Del Ratzsch offers readers a thoughtful perspective on current trends and useful advice on how to approach faith and science issues.
