Mathematics from a Christian perspective

With respect for the history and ever-changing applications of mathematicalprinciples, James Bradley and Russell Howell, along with a team of fellowscholars, invite readers to consider the rich intersection of mathematics andChristian 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 bythe study of mathematics, a discipline that demands profound thought andhelps us understand the beauty and the order of our physical world.

Mathematics Through the Eyes of Faith explores questions such as:

What is the relationship between chance and divine providence?

Do concepts like infinity point beyond themselves to a higher reality?

Is mathematics discovered or invented, and why is it effective in the sciences?

This comprehensive work, one in a series of cosponsored by the Council for Christian Colleges & Universities, is designed to help students and teachers understand how mathematics has evolved and how the interplay of mathematics and Christian belief can enrich the study of both.
