“A clear exposition of the idea that science is a wondrous human endeavor that successfully gives us an understanding about many physical aspects of the universe, including the universe itself and its past history. Yet there remain (and are likely to remain) aspects of a believer’s faith that are inaccessible to science – e.g., the Resurrection of Jesus. Those are, at least for the present, matters exclusively of faith, and not amenable to scientific proof, since, by definition, miracles suspend the regularity of nature. The author portrays this need for faith – in the unprovable – as essential, and trust in that which science has discovered as pointless to deny.”
