Why Science Needs the Christian Worldview

Christians can be confident in a discussion on the nature and use of science, precisely because only the Christian worldview can provide the necessary preconditions for the intelligibility of scientific inquiry.

Declaraţii radicale: petrec între o oră şi o oră şi jumătate în rugăciune înainte de a-mi permite să deschid computerul

I spend an hour to an hour and a half a day in prayer before I allow myself to open my computer.

The recent economic meltdown has cast a harsh new light on these pursuits. In a matter of months, fortunes, marriages, careers, and a secure retirement have disappeared for millions of people. No wonder so many of us feel lost, alone, disenchanted, and resentful.
