1. Case 19 - The God of Science

We’re putting the final touches to Case 19 - The God of Science, and hope it will be a thought-provoking and useful edition for our CASE associates. The articles in this issue include:

  • an exploration of naturalism and the biblical worldview by Kirsten Birkett,
  • a discussion of God and evolution by Denis Alexander,
  • an examination of the question of whether belief in God is a purely psychological phenomenon by Michael Murray,
  • a consideration of the role and limits of science in moral reasoning by Lewis Jones,
  • and, in a follow-up to Case 18, a look at architecture and its end by Cameron Blair.

If you are not a CASE associate and would like to become one (to receiveCase 19 and three future issues of Case magazine), you will find all the information you need here. CASE associates also receive access to associates-only resources on the website and discounts to CASE events.
