My friend, Chris Reese, let me know that his long awaited book Dictionary of Christianity and Science was available to read. At the mention, I was excited that such a much-needed resource was created and will be (as of this writing) available in just five days for the public to read and place on their personal library’s shelf for years to come as an excellent resource on the subject of faith and science.
So, did this book deliver on my high expectations?
In short, yes! Not only is the Dictionary of Christianity and Science current and relevant to the topic of science and Christianity but it gives a broad range to learn from on various views such as the age of the earth, Adam and Eve, as well as current figures in the field of science like the atheist Richard Dawkins and Christian mathematician, John Lennox more as well as historical figures ranging from Galileo to Calvin, the theologian.
The Dictionary of Christianity and Science has a great team of editors and contributors that are familiar and an expert in their field (Paul Copan, Tremper Longman III, and James Spiegel as examples), yet I’ve encountered names I wasn’t familiar with before that I’m making a mental note to check their work out further. This book is not to be read in one session but rather a resource with its special place on the bookshelf to come back to time and again to grow in understanding in the connection between science and Christianity.
If you thirst to learn more about the history of science in relation to Christianity there are excellent reads sprinkled throughout the book to dive into. Not only is the content on the inside enjoyable to read through, but the print and layout of the text is an easy-to-read format (which cannot be said about all resource books).

Fine-tuning is closely related to and commonly involved in any discussion of the anthropic principle.
If you enjoy or want to learn more about the relationship between science and Christianity I highly recommend Dictionary of Christianity and Science as an addition to your bookshelf and personal studies!
