Weekend science, religion, and etc. reading list

April 10, 2015

Some good stuff to read this weekend:

  1. A couple throw-backs from Freddie DeBoer that highlight the need to argue with a political theory/strategy in mind. Freddie writes about adjunct faculty there and (I suspect) doesn’t give a hoot about religious freedom. But his basic message is spot on and should be heeded.
  2. BioLogos has a post by John Walton, author of The Lost World of Genesis One. That book has been on my reading list for a while and I hope to get to it this summer.
  3. A second post by Walton.
  4. On travel paperwork at the NIH.

There you have it.

    I have read John Walton’s book and I think it would be a better use of your time to read his posts on BioLogos. There seem to be some weaknesses in his book that he counters in his posts. This I think would be helpful to you in understanding and evaluating his position.

        I do not know if this will be helpful or not but I thought I would tell you that the Robert Bishop that John Walton cites in his book as having good ideas on creation as it relates to science and biology is writing a book for Intervarsity Press that is scheduled to be published next summer. He sent me a draft chapter. I found his concepts exciting and I think they could be useful for the Christian side of the continuing dialog between science and religion. It is too bad Praj will not be able to put it on his reading list for more than a year.
