“Faith is under assault today in the media and on college campuses. Scientific advances can lead people to think that faith is passé, supplanted by science, and no longer necessary. Parents are concerned that their children’s faith is not as strong as it should be.”  Prof. Tom McAvoy in his recent book God the Geometer demonstrates using concrete facts how cosmology, physics, astronomy, biology, and evolution, strongly support faith in God and are not in conflict with it. Anyone interested in the subject please click on the book cover.
