MOORESVILLE, N.C., Aug. 14, 2019 /PRNewswire-PRWeb/ -- For James G. Martin, the growing literary movement reconciling science and religion as compatible sources of knowledge has inspired his wish to contribute some compelling material from chemistry. He wants to help lift the burden from believers and seekers to realize that science is not the enemy of faith. This objective led him to write "Revelation Through Science" (published by Xlibris in November 2016).
Set for a new marketing campaign, the book explores the relationship between science and religion. It reviews a variety of topics: a history of the warfare between science and religion, including the church's rejection of Galileo's contention that the earth revolved around the sun; the challenges of Darwin's theory of evolution to a universe created by God; and agnostic and atheistic contentions that creation was random. Beyond these historical reviews, it also presents expository chapters of modern astronomy, geology and paleontology, physics, biology, organic chemistry and biotechnology and genomics.
"This book was written for the educated non-scientist who may be troubled by apparent or alleged conflicts between science and religion," Martin says. "Astronomers, physicists, biologists, and geologists have shown that the more deeply science probes nature, the more it reveals evidence pointing us to God. After reviewing concepts from those fields, this book adds new material from chemistry. It describes structures that are profoundly vital for life, yet far too complex for self-assembly without some guiding principle."
"Revelation Through Science" aims to remind readers that science is not the enemy of faith, but a modern source of revelation. "Contrary to the claims of some antagonists, science is not the intellectual asset solely of atheism," Martin adds.
