Test of Faith Spiritual Journeys with Scientists

I was not expecting this to be the read it was, despite being a scientist of sorts – well, aren't all medics? I am easily confused by complex scientific concepts and I expected to be confused. However, this is not so much a book of science as a book of stories of scientists and how they became able to reconcile science and faith. At the end of each chapter there is a meditation from the scientist featured.

This book is easy to read, although relatively easy to put down as each chapter is complete in its own right. There is an accompanying DVD, to be used with a study guide and leader's guide for small groups. This focuses more on the issues at the interface between faith and science, providing a format for discussion.

This book does not explain or apply science but shows its impact in real life. If you want to work through how science and faith fit together, this may not be the place to look. If you want to see how people live with science, faith and integrity, then it's a good place to go.
