Abstract:

Mathematics from a Christian perspective. With respect for the history and ever-changing applications of mathematical principles, James Bradley and Russell Howell, along with a team of fellow scholars, invite readers to consider the rich intersection of mathematics and Christian belief. Citizens of the twenty-first century generally believe that mathematics is all about numbers and formulas, with no religious significance -- an attitude that belies the faith-based work of thinkers from Plato to Newton. It is time to reawaken our sensitivity to the vital spiritual matters raised by the study of mathematics, a discipline that demands profound thought and helps us understand the beauty and the order of our physical world. - Back cover.

"This comprehensive work, one of a series cosponsored by the Council for Christian Colleges and Universities, addresses the needs of the Christian student of mathematics to align science and faith. It demonstrates that the study of mathematics penetrates to the core of human existence and has much to contribute to the construction of a consistent Christian worldview"--
