From Tyndale to Galileo: Grace and Space

Date recorded: 21 May 2017 | Speaker: David Block | Event: ELF Science Network
Topic: Science
From Tyndale to Galileo: Grace and Space


Readers of the atheist literature may come away believing that science has made God unnecessary. This talk offers a different perspective. Although science can illuminate the glories of the creation, this talk argues that it is beyond the domain of science to infer that God does not exist.  God exists outside of space and time. At the heart of God's Kingdom is grace, as expounded by the great Reformer William Tyndale.  Space belongs to the Book of Nature, as elucidated by Galileo Galilei. Grace belongs to the Book of Scripture. There is no grace in space.

David Block co-wrote a forthcoming book on this subject (Grace and Space: Two Astronomers Reflect upon the Universe of Space and the God of Grace) with Kenneth Freeman, which Giovanni Fazio, Senior Physicist at the Harvard-Smithsonian Center for Astrophysics, has called “a must read if one is to gain a proper prospective on life and why we exist in the Universe!”
