This book has been written in the conviction that the first eleven chapters of the book of Genesis – the Bible’s book of beginnings – provide a trustworthy and accurate account of the early history of the universe.
In the increasingly secular age in which we live, it is all too easy to forget that the major disciplines of science were founded by men of broadly Christian convictions. Their names are perhaps familiar to us – Boyle, Ray, Hooke, Newton, Faraday – but there is often an embarrassed silence concerning the spiritual beliefs that motivated these scientific giants.
Like the astronomer, Kepler, these men perceived that in their scientific insights they were thinking God’s thoughts after him’. Today, however, there is a sense of collective amnesia about the religious motivations of these men.
