Overview

Does science discredit the Bible, God, religious faith? Absolutely not, says Dr. Michael Guillen, former Harvard physics instructor and Emmy-winning ABC News Science Editor. In Amazing Truths, he uses his entertaining, down-to-earth storytelling skills to reveal ten astonishing truths affirmed by both ancient Scripture and modern science that answer some of our biggest questions: Can faith really move mountains? Does absolute truth exist? Are humans truly unique? Is it possible to communicate with God? How much about the universe do we actually know? How could Jesus have been fully man and fully God?

In Amazing Truths, Dr. Guillen explains that faith is not some outdated way of thinking. Faith is a necessary part of science, Christianity, and any intelligent, comprehensive, coherent worldview - vastly more powerful than even logic.

Amazing Truths will expand your mind and bolster your faith. You will see for yourself what Dr. Guillen, a theoretical physicist and devout Christian, has discovered in a lifetime of serious exploration--that science and faith are not at odds. In fact, they're the ultimate power couple.

Religion and science aren't as different as we believe, Guillen (Can a Smart Person Believe in God?) argues. The former science editor for ABC discusses 10 questions that would seem to divide science and faith, showing instead that they often aren't far apart. Similarities can be found when asking questions such as "Was Jesus a man or god?," "Was the Earth created in a Big Bang?," or "How does time work?," by considering the laws and fundamental truths that have stood the test of time yet still lead to incomplete answers, Guillen proposes. To approach the gap between what can be submitted to empirical testing and what we believe without concrete evidence, Guillen explains different topics from biblical and scientific perspectives. Each chapter concludes with a section titled "What Does It Mean to You and Me?" in which he sums up his points to find common ground between science and religion. Can faith and science ever reach total agreement? Probably not, he writes, because science has effectively taken God out of the equation. Nevertheless, Guillen articulates how bringing faith into scientific study can reinvigorate inquiries into life's deepest mysteries. Agent: Wes Yoder, Ambassador. (Feb.)
