Author Bio:                 For more than 40 years the author has had a passionate interest in trying to reconcile the conflicts between science and religion. Being one who loves the truths found in each, he has devoted extensive amounts of time researching and finding some of the problems causing the conflicts. As a retired bank examiner and CPA, he takes a questioning approach to some of the conflicting dogmas, looking to find plausible possibilities for reconciliation.

Synopsis:                     A great deal of information has been gathered from a wide range of sources. Popular scientific theories conflicting with Bible descriptions are discussed—including their strengths and weakness. The author takes a rather literal approach to the scriptures and shares intriguing summaries of unusual scientific theories which are more consistent. “What seems to be proved may not be embraced; but what no one shows the ability to defend is quickly abandoned. Rational argument does not create belief, but it maintains a climate in which belief may flourish.” –Austin Farrer

Endorsements:            “David Barker has written a book in which he examines biblical accounts in light of current research theories.  Many conventional scientists might be unsympathetic, but some of the questions he asks and the suggestions he proposes are thought-provoking and well worth pondering.” —Noel L. Owen, Emeritus Professor of Chemistry, PhD

                                    “Undoubtedly, this work will be dismissed by ‘experts,’ but if judged in a court of law, it would have to be conceded that he has certainly ‘raised considerable doubt’ about the validity of many scientific conclusions. —Dale O Zabriskie, former President of the National Alliance of State Broadcasters Associations
