Very thought provoking. The author advocates for an integrated view of science and faith. More specifically, we must respect science as science by adhering to the methods within science and we must respect faith adhering to sound methods of interpretation, historical science etc., within religion. We must Not impose the methods of science over and above scripture (special revelation). Nor should we hold a low view of science (natural revelation). If there "appears" to be a contradiction, we must hold the science and faith in tension and work through them both. The apparent contradiction could be more so with our interpretation of either science or faith rather than with the actual facts.

I loved how this book really got into more depth concerning the nature of the Bible and a way in which to approach it. For instance, the author talks about how the Bible uses phenomenological language rather than contemporary scientific or philosophical language. The Bible is comprised of multiple authors, using their language, filtered through their worldview, giving an account of the phenomena that they have encountered. It's not a book using sophisticated scientific and philosophical language. We cannot approach the Bible in that manner. This has helped clear some of my confusion as I seek to implement a more integrative approach.

This insightful and thought-provoking work was written in a manner that reduces seemingly difficult concepts into easily digestible morsels. I recommend it for group studies, because the Questions For Further Consideration after each chapter provide for lively discussion and an exchange of ideas and information. The book was written by an educator and accurately hits the mark in teaching us how we learn, how our opinions are formed, and how we can further develop our thought process as we pursue a knowledge of God. Transformed Thinking: Loving God With All Your Mind

This book while insightful is difficult to read. This is used for a college class and all of the students found it difficult to understand the writing. Read it with a dictionary on hand and don't even expect to find all the words you are looking for.
