Technology has always shaped human life and our understanding of what it means to be human. But does it actually encourage human flourishing? By exploring the doctrine of the incarnation and what it means for our embodiment, Craig Gay raises concerns about the theological implications of modern technologies and movements such as transhumanism, offering an alternative vision to the path of modern technology.
What does it mean to both affirm the goodness of God's creation and anticipate the new creation? Bringing together contributions from church leaders, academic theologians, and scientists on the doctrine of creation, this volume engages with Scripture, scientific theory, church history, and current issues to help Christians understand the beginning and ending of God's good creation.
Plasma physicist Ian Hutchinson has been asked hundreds of questions about faith and science. Are there realities science cannot explain?

In this comprehensive volume, Hutchinson answers a full range of inquiries with sound scientific insights and measured Christian perspective.
Do the writings of the church fathers support a literalist interpretation of Genesis 1? Young earth creationists have maintained that they do.
