Abstract

The case has often before been made for a connection between biblical thought, particularly the biblical idea of creation, and the rise of modern science. Alfred North Whitehead and R. G. Collingwod were among the pioneers of the argument.' Its best known exponents in our generation would be Reijer Hooykaas and Stanley Jaki.2 It is widely recognized, for instance, that many of the founders of modern Western science were not only devout Christians, but were inspired in creative ways by their Christian faith. Johann Kepler, Isaac Newton, and James Clerk Maxwell are some of the best examples.
