God in the Lab Summary

God in the Lab: How science enhances faith by Ruth M. Bancewicz

For Dr Ruth Bancewicz, experiencing scientific research first hand brings a sense of awe that enhances faith. She has encountered many others who have similar stories. This book distils that experience, and explores the common ground between science and faith. Science can be unglamorous and tough, but it gives the opportunity to use creativity and imagination, to appreciate the beauty of the natural world, and to experience the joy of finding out new things - thinking God's thoughts after him. Through the eyes of the author and six other experienced scientists, God in the Lab shows how science can build faith in God.

God in the Lab Reviews

"Ruth Bancewicz shows how creativity, beauty, wonder and awe are essential experiences in scientific investigation. She demonstrates that there is no great discontinuity between science and other human quests for truth, including religion." -- Revd Dr John Polkinghorne, KBE, former President of Queens' College, Cambridge
"Highly readable ... Peppered with interesting facts and anecdotes, this is for everyone interested in the conversation between science and faith." -- Dr Denis Alexander, Emeritus Director, The Faraday Institute for Science and Religion
"On a topic so often dominated by the culture wars, Dr Bancewicz brings a fresh and much-needed emphasis on wonder to conversations about science and Christian faith. She reminds us that the beauty, awe, and creativity of the natural world points to its Creator. This readable book would make a great gift for a pastor or student." -- Dr Deborah B. Haarsma, Astronomer and President of BioLogos
"Written with rigour, creativity and the day-to-day insight of a true scientist. [God in the Lab] has widened the horizons of the science and faith debate by bringing new and needed perspectives. I heartily recommend it." -- Dr Sharon Dirckx, Tutor at the Oxford Centre for Christian Apologetics, author and former brain imaging scientist
"[God in the Lab] is both well researched and contains a fresh and inspiring personal narrative. It should reignite in others a passion for the friendship between science and religious belief." -- Revd David B Rowe, Warden of the Lee Abbey Community
"Ruth Bancewicz's beautifully written book demonstrates how science enhances faith, with many examples from real scientists who are Christians, and many memorable quotations. This is a great book to give to those who believe there is a conflict between science and faith." -- Professor Sir Colin Humphreys, Director of Research at Cambridge University and President of Christians in Science
