“How could a scientist achieve his goal of discovering the absolute truths that govern the natural world without the blessing of the Author of those truths?

“For the scientific mind, the Bible is wonderful if you read it from start to finish. It fits together with an astonishing consistency, which was the opposite of my secular perception. My early impressions were that it was rife with contradictions.”

“Some theologians and preachers qualified certain statements in the Bible, making their accommodations with the scientific world saying … most of the claims for creation and for miracles have alternate explanations. If the Bible has to be qualified at every verse, then it isn't long before you drift away from its authority.”
