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.

No wonder so many of us feel lost, alone, disenchanted, and resentful.
