Item Description...
How is it that the same God who created all that is splendid and who has the power to raise Jesus from the dead also allows the extinction of many wonderful creations, the suffering of cancer, and other difficulties? George Murphy finds understanding in the theology of the cross, with a God who becomes a participant in the universe and thereby shares the suffering, loss, and death that are part of the worldly experience. God is willing to be condemned in the name of the law, to be rejected and abandoned by humanity, and to be abandoned even by God. Murphy uses this theology of the cross as a perspective from which to read ecology, evolution, and bioethics. His view gives us new opportunities to understand the apparent absence of God in natural process, the role of death in evolution, and the ethical ambiguities raised by science-based technologies. George L. Murphy is the Pastoral Associate at St. Paul's Episcopal Church in Akron, Ohio. A Templeton Fellow, he teaches theology and science at Trinity Lutheran Seminary in Columbus, Ohio.

Reviews - What do our customers think?
Finally a Christ-centered book on science and faith  Jan 21, 2006
I have often wondered why so many books on science and Christian faith say so little about Christ. When such books focus on origins, fossils and floods, it makes me wonder why Christians support them so strongly. Finally, here is a book that turns the priorities around and gets the focus back on Christ, showing profound connections between what the Bible says about Christ and what we see (and don't see) in nature. This book will help any Christian to see what matters in the creation/evolution debate, and will offer new insights into the meaning of familiar Bible passages.

George Murphy is a Lutheran pastor with a Ph.D. in quantum physics. Hence he is fully qualified to represent authentic Christian theology and authentic, up-to-date understanding of modern science. I highly recommend this book to all thoughtful readers on these subjects.

 
A new and profoundly Christian approach to science  Dec 23, 2003
George Murphy is a Lutheran pastor with a Ph.D. in quantum physics. He is fluent in both fields. This is what it takes to deal adequately with the issues of science and specifically Christian theology. This book gives an alternative to literal creationism, intelligent design, theistic evolution, scientism and other popular options. It is the book I as a Christian have been seeking for a long time. Other than being too brief, it does an excellent job at bringing the focus back on Christ rather than all the details that have kept us bogged down in endless debates. Buy this book, and get one for a friend!
