SCIENCE Do scientific explanations of phenomena remove the need for a Designer?
COSMOLOGY How can the scientific account of the development of the universe be reconciled with Genesis?
EVOLUTION Can Judaism accept the idea that animals and man evolved from lower forms of life via natural selection?
The Challenge of Creation is a completely revised and vastly expanded edition of The Science Of Torah. That work was widely hailed as the best book of its kind for its honesty and thoroughness of approach. The Challenge of Creation builds upon its approach, covering more issues and in greater depth. Carefully, methodically, and eschewing sensationalistic or dogmatic claims in favor of reasoned analysis, it shows how some of the greatest Jewish thinkers explained Judaism and Genesis in a way that complements modern science rather than conflicts with it. The Challenge of Creation is an invaluable resource for anyone grappling with conflicts between science and religion. It is a profound work that is sure to become a classic.
