On-Line Resources
Faith / Science Issues

The American Scientific Affiliation (ASA) is making available on the Internet a series of papers on basic science/faith themes designed for the lay reader and students. These are meant to provide material relating aspects of science to the Christian faith to a broad audience. These articles are not meant to be just for scholars but for students, teachers, church leaders, and others who may be interested in these faith/science questions. In general, these articles further the aims of the ASA to educate readers in science and how to think Christianly about science. The ASA does have a Statement of Belief, but does not have official detailed positions on issues that have been controversial among Christians, and its membership holds a variety of viewpoints.

Some of these articles are reprints of already published materials--some of them have been written especially for this electronic resource. The ASA will continue its efforts to provide electronic versions of some articles from Perspectives on Science and Christian Faith., the official journal of the ASA.

The electronic version was created especially for the ASA website. ©1987 by Daniel E. Wonderly.
This work is an attempt to enlist creationists in a serious study of the actual characteristics of the earth's sedimentary strata. Creationist organizations are emphasizing some important truths about creation, but they have neglected the data of earth-science research to such an extend that disgrace has now descended upon the doctrine of biblical creation throughout the nation. In this carefully documented book the author encourages evangelical Christians to take an interest in the real data of earth science, and shows them how they can use such information to alleviate this problem.
