HarperOne recently published “Mathematics Through the Eyes of Faith.” Robert Myers, Ph.D., dean of sciences and associate professor of mathematics, is one of the contributing authors for the book, having co-written the chapter on proof and truth. The book is an addition to Harper’s “Through the Eyes of Faith” series that includes biology, psychology and other disciplines.
“Mathematics Through the Eyes of Faith” is intended as a supplement in introductory-level mathematics courses, and discusses the various points on the integration of faith and mathematics. Co-sponsored by the Council for Christian Colleges and Universities, this book addresses the Christian student’s need to bring science into accord with faith. This deeply insightful and penetrating exploration of secular scholarship and spiritual pedagogy demonstrates how the discipline of mathematics penetrates the very core issues of human existence, and illustrates how math contributes to the construction of a consistent Christian worldview.
