We don’t need to fear science — including the social sciences. Science is based on curiosity, hypothesis and observation of the way things are. In other words, it’s about truth, and we should never fear seeking truth — even if that means continually updating and expanding our current level of insight and understanding.
We need to develop a way of reading the Bible that lines up with reality, a way of practicing our faith that fits with the full depths of our human experience. That way, we can have a relevant and living faith benefiting from integrating all areas of knowledge — the sciences, the arts, religion, etc. — rather than pitting them against each other.
