Mathematics Through the Eyes of Faith

Do mathematical concepts point beyond themselves to a higher reality? Can the idea of chance be reconciled with God’s sovereignty? How do we account for mathematics being so effective in describing the world? How does giving people the capacity to do mathematics fit into God’s purposes for humanity?

These are just a few of the questions tackled by the latest installment in the “Through the Eyes of Faith” series.

The book Mathematics Through the Eyes of Faith is available now! Order your copy here.

I was fortunate enough to receive an advance copy of this work at the ACMS 2011 conference. I have a full review pending with Perspectives on Science and Christian Faith, so I will wait to post that here. But here is my short review: this is almost everything I would ever want to see in a book on mathematics and Christian faith. I strongly (strongly) recommend it to anyone interested in this topic.

UPDATE: Here is a link to the full review.

So go get a copy. I would love to hear what you think about it.
