Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
"Toward a Christian View" is a highly recommended book. Murphy goes through nearly every single major bioethics question of today (with the exception of abortion), looking closely at how a Christian can respond to these scientific issues. He makes it clear in his introduction that he is not mandating *the* Christian view, or speaking of one definite scientific world. His title is purposeful- proposing *a* Christian view, and *a* scientific world. He wants to raise ideas and propose ways of thinking that get beyond the argumentation and hypocrisy, and really try to deal with the texts, both scientific and Christian.

Highlights and topics include:

*Understanding how God controls nature. How He is present in nature sets up how we view His action in natural law and the scientific world.

*How we can know God. If God is knowable through nature as well as text, then there must be some order to things. This leads directly into

*The Scientific View of the World. How science perceives the world- as ordered and learnable. Thankfully

*God's action in the world is the same way. He could do anything He wants, but He generally limits Himself to logical action, so that science is possible, and the world is not arbitrary. Part of this is the idea that creation is good, as it says in Genesis 1, and a big part of being good is being logical.

*Reading the Bible. God acts now as he did in the beginning, using natural laws. He is present in every action, but most actions are also in accord with laws. Murphy also points out that there are many different forms of literature in the Bible, such as allegory, parable, myth, poetry, and even historical record.
