Congratulations on the publication of T. M. Moore's outstanding paper "Model for a Christian Approach to Scientific Endeavor" (June 1986, pp. 103-109). Moore's crisp, clear approach to the relationships between the theological sciences, natural sciences, and human sciences provides a rational framework for future discussions of this general area. His simple circle drawings are, in my opinion, particularly insightful. More generally, Moore's paper is a welcome relief from the muddle-mindedness and lack of respect for the authority of Scripture that usually accompanies such polemics on the science/Christianity interface.
