Intelligent Design: The Bridge Between Science and Theology
William A. Dembski
The Intelligent Design movement is three things:
a scientific research program for investigating intelligent causes
an intellectual movement that challenges naturalistic evolutionary theories
a way of understanding divine action
Although the fast-growing movement has gained considerable grassroots support, many scientists and theologians remain skeptical about its merits. Scientists worry that it's bad science (merely creationism in disguise) and theologians worry that it's bad theology (misunderstanding divine action). In this book, William Dembski addresses these concerns and brilliantly argues that intelligent design provides a crucial link between science and theology.
Various chapters creatively and powerfully address intelligent discernment of divine action in nature, why the significane of miracles should be reconsidered, and the demise and unanswered questions of British natural theology. Effectively challenging the hegemony of naturalism and reinstating design within science, Dembski shows how intelligent design can be unpacked as a theory of information.
is a pivotal, synthesizing work from a thinker whom Phillip Johnson calls "one of the most important of the design theorists who are sparking a scientific revolution by legitimating the concept of intelligent design in science."
