Faith & Science Resources
This page is intended to give some ideas on areas you could focus on and what books are available. Please refer to the Great Books Project Description for project expectations such as timeline, etc.
There are a multitude of things you could focus on in the area of science and religion. Some ideas include:
- The role of religion, the role of science, and how they relate to each other.
- The history of the earth (evolution, dinosaurs, age of the earth,...)
- A Christian view on genetics (possibly getting into some moral issues relating to cloning, stem cells,...)
I'd encourage you to do some thinking about what you'd like to focus on and then we can talk and outline specifically what you should read before writing your paper. That way we're both on the same page as far as expectations go...
There are many good books out there that you can pick from. I have these titles here at school that you can read during class and sign out to take home at night. These and others are also available through your local library system. (The library system will ship books from other libraries to your local library for you to check out if your local library doesn't have the book in stock.) Clicking on a book title takes you to Amazon.com where you can read reviews on the book. I found it quite interesting to see what people thought of the books. I'd like to point out that having the book on my shelf does not mean that I necessarily agree with some or all of what they say in the book.
