Science, Supporting Scripture: New Book Grounds Bible History in Objective Research
Catholic Answers
March 14, 2023

SAN DIEGO, March 14, 2023 /Christian Newswire/ -- Can even the most fantastical stories from the Bible really be taken seriously as historical events? Christians who are tired of hearing about how Scripture is unscientific or "Stone Age" now have a tool to help them answer that question.

In The Word Set in Stone, Catholic apologist Dave Armstrong takes a methodical, reality-based approach to examining the biblical episodes closest to Christians' hearts: the creation of the Garden of Eden, Moses' parting of the Red Sea, and many more. Using rigorous, unbiased, and secular sources from archaeology and the hard sciences, Armstrong reveals the scientific backing behind many of the miraculous happenings in the Old Testament, plus a wealth of historical claims from the New.

In so doing, he shows that Christians don't have to be embarrassed about their Bible, or distinguish in their minds between the "Bible of faith" and the "Bible of history."

"It's become something of a cliché among atheists and other secularists to say the Bible is just a series of fairy tales that science irrefutably contradicts," says Todd Aglialoro, director of publishing for Catholic Answers Press. "It can be hard for Christians to contest these claims, especially when they involve some of the really singular events in salvation history. But Dave Armstrong puts these events under a microscope and finds scientific grounding—especially in archaeology, but in other fields, too—for even the most extraordinary."
