“Amazing Truths” by Michael Guillen

Amazing Truths: How Science and the Bible AgreeAmazing Truths: How Science and the Bible Agree by Michael Guillen
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

This book is about, as simple as the title suggests, how science and the Bible agree (and how amazing is that!). This seems like a novel concept in recent years, but as one of my younger degrees will attest (Bachelor of Science in Religion), the study of religion is a study in [social] science, and the Bible actually inspired the field of science, as one used to do inquiry and study to prove Scripture to be true. This book tackles the concept of science using a logical perspective: with science there is objective truth, contradictory natures can exist, not all of reality is revealed to humanity [yet], and more.

Science without religion is lame; religion without science is blind. – Albert Einstein

This book seeks to prove the existence of absolute truth with the usage of ten objective truths introduced by the author. Objectivity is shunned in postmodern society yet is still the basis of all scientific inquiry. The reality is that objective truth exists when truth is removed from all cultural, political, and gender bias. There is a right and a wrong, a yes and a no, and good and a bad.
The author’s work on this subject is engaging. My wife initially took interest in the this book and then asked me to look it over instead of her because it does have a philosophical complexity at times. I tend to communicate in more advanced terminology and am well versed in scientific inquiry, whereas she is more of a people engager and focuses on relational therapy. This is perhaps the greatest struggle with the book in that, due to its scientific nature, there is a level of scientific terminology that may discourage readers not well acquainted or interested in the field. Nonetheless, the content is excellent and worth further reading.
