Fearfully and Wonderfully Made

The intricate beauty and complexity of the natural world have long captivated human imagination and inspired scientific inquiry. For many Christians, exploring the wonders of creation through science deepens their faith and appreciation for God’s handiwork.

A Midsummer Reading List

To provide a fresh voice—and thus a fresh summer reading list—we’ve asked C.W. Howell to describe his recommended reading for the summer. Chris (as he goes by in person!) is a writer, who holds a PhD in religion from Duke University. He has taught at Duke and Elon Universities and is the academic director at the C.S. Lewis Foundation. His upcoming first book is a history of the intelligent design movement, to be published by NYU Press. He writes regularly on religion, science, and technology—as well as science fiction, pop culture, and C.S. Lewis—on his website.

Pondering God’s Presence Inside and Outside

Though Augustine does affirm philosophy and the value of natural knowledge, in the opening quotation, he derided those that sought a knowledge of nature but not of the self. This challenge led me to wonder if we, who take in the insights of science and faith, who read the books of nature and Scripture, can have both? Can we put together our searching the cosmos and the soul?

Rewire Your Brain

Rewire Your Brain

Our faith can give us the power for change, but so does our God-given neurobiology. Scientists call it neuroplasticity. Our brains are malleable, and as our neurons and synapses rewire, we change. New neurons can even form. This happens throughout our lives, though at a slower rate as adults. Any repeated brain activity rewires us, and once rewired, our mental and physical experience of the world can be transformed.

Scientists, Pastors… & Toys?

Scientists, Pastors… & Toys?

How do scientists and clergy work together for the good of the gospel? Fortunately, the Christian scientists I’ve met share a love for both their individual specialities and for the bigger-picture greater good of the Gospel of Jesus.
