Exploding Stars, Dead Dinosaurs, and Zombies: Youth Ministry in the Age of Science

Andrew Root

Exploding Stars, Dead Dinosaurs, and Zombies: Youth Ministry in the Age of Science

Andrew Root

$28.99

Paperback
Science may be the biggest threat to teenage faith today, but Andrew Root demonstrates that, in fact, the two are not incompatible. Root, a renowned expert on adolescent spirituality, shows how science overstates its claims on truth, while faith often understates its own claims. Both faith and science frame the experience and reality of teenagers, and both have something valuable to offer as adolescents develop. Drawing on a fictional account of a youth pastor and the various students he encounters, Root paints a compelling picture of how faith can flourish, even in our scientific age.
