“Is Genesis a Fence Barrier to The Cross?” – Sigmund Brouwer

& University Chapels.

Sigmund Brouwer, author of Who Made The Moon?, discusses harmony and conflict between the truths of science and the truths of the first chapter of the Bible, and what it means for your own faith journey.

The great scientist Galileo Galilei was also a man of deep faith, whose political troubles began because he boldly stated, “Since no two truths can contradict one another, the position of Copernicus and the Bible must be perfectly harmonious.” To Galileo, truth was not divisible. To Galileo science and faith did not contain conflicting sets of truth.

Galileo, however, lived long before humankind could fire satellites into the outer reaches of the solar system, long before scientists could unravel the mysteries of genetics. Does his position still hold?

Sigmund Brouwer is the best-selling author of 19 novels, including Flight of Shadows and The Canary List. The research and writing of his non-fiction title Who Made The Moon? was inspired by the same question posed to him by his daughter as a three-year-old.
