Both science and theology have much to say about the beginnings and the meaning of life, but the scarcity of helpful and productive dialogue has been overwhelmed by fierce rhetoric and ardently defended positions. When did life begin? Did life arise by chance? Does the universe display evidence of order? Philosophers, theologians, and scientists rarely agree, leaving many of life’s fundamental questions unanswered and inquiring minds bewildered.
Hugh Ross, who directs the efforts of Reasons To Believe, rises above the fray to present clear and well-reasoned arguments for the existence of God and evidence of God’s design in the universe. Drawing from his experience as a scientist and his background as a Christian apologist, Ross weighs in on the controversy; and confronts naturalist notions of creation and order.
In the 9-volume Hugh Ross/Reasons To Believe Collection, Ross shows that abundant evidence exists for a Creator, and that Christians who dispute naturalist claims about origins stand on firm intellectual footing. The books in the Hugh Ross/Reasons to Believe Collection address the most pressing issues relating to the current debate between creation and evolution, such as the evidence of order and design in the universe, the veracity and historicity of the events in Genesis, the origins of life, and the scientific basis for belief in God.
The Hugh Ross/Reasons to Believe Collection is ideal for anyone interested in the creation/evolution debate, for apologists, for Christians interested in science, and for pastors and teachers.
