Bible and Science

Longing for God in a Science-Dominated World

Vincent Smiles

Confusing paradox surrounds the Bible. Some look to it as the definition of reality and deny science; others see science alone as the arbiter of truth and deny the Bible. Both extremes are merely symptoms of a still wider debate on the place of ancient spiritual wisdom in a science-dominated world. Following the Reformation and Enlightenment, the Western world gained great power but lost its spiritual bearings. This book draws on numerous sources, ancient and modern, to examine what the missteps were that have brought us to a point of such confusion, and in doing so argues cogently against the modern philosophy of scientific materialism. With the aid of biblical stories and imagery it suggests how we might find our way back to balance, where ancient wisdom and modern science can together shed light on humans and their encompassing reality. Vincent Smiles is professor of theology at Saint John’s University, Collegeville, Minnesota.

Science as Sacred Metaphor

An Evolving Revelation

Elizabeth Michael Boyle, OP

For Sister Elizabeth Michael Boyle, there’s nothing quite like the world of science—with its aha! moments, quandaries, and inscrutable mysteries—to usher the modern seeker into the divine presence of God. In this book, she creates a sacred space at the intersection where science and faith meet. Sister Boyle says that Jesus, who used the lives of birds and wildflowers as signs of the divine would probably be saying today, Consider the implications of lilies and stars, of quarks and quantas. Learn from the drama of life-out-of-death in everything from seeds to tsunamis. In Science as Sacred Metaphor, Sister Boyle leads the reader to unravel the fascinating threads of science and follow them to the marvelous skein of spiritual insight and contemplative wonder. With a blend of scientific fact, powerful poetry, and spiritual exploration, she helps the reader discover anew and more deeply the ever-gracious Mystery in whom all that exists lives and moves and has its being. Elizabeth Michael Boyle, OP, PhD, is a professor of English at Caldwell College, Caldwell, New Jersey. Her book, Preaching the Poetry of the Gospels, won a first place award from the Catholic Press Association in 2004. A playwright, poet, and teacher, she finds inspiration for poetry and prayer in the natural sciences.

From the Beginning to Baptism

Scientific and Sacred Stories of Water, Oil, and Fire

Linda Gibler, OP; Foreword by David N. Power

In From the Beginning to Baptism, Linda Gibler takes readers on a journey—from the depths of space and the beginning of time through sacred Scripture and church history—to discover the origins and creative power of water, oil, and fire. She traces the lives of those elemental entities through their cosmic history, to the point at which they are poured over the head and light the way of one being baptized. These elemental sources of all life are the substances through which new life in Christ begins in the sacrament of baptism. The journey through space and time, through the birth of the Universe and of life, and Gibler’s reflections on this drama, help readers to enter into the "cosmocentric spirituality" at the heart of all things. No one who reads this book will ever again look at a drop of water, an olive, or a candle with the same eyes. Linda Gibler, PhD, a Houston Dominican Sister, is currently associate academic dean at the Oblate School of Theology in San Antonio, Texas. She has several years’ experience as a parish minister and is the science editor and a contributing author for the Collins Foundation Press, which hosts conferences on the significance of recent scientific revelations for faith, meaning, and the well-being of Earth and all her species.
