I am extremely happy to finally post my review about “Science Mike” McHargue’s new book, Finding God in the Waves: How I Lost My Faith And Found It Again Through Science. This book is easily near the top of my book recommendations for the year and one I have been excited about reading for months.
If you’re a regular reader here at Unboxing God, then conversations involving faith and doubt through a lens of modern science and history are not new to you. But until recently, finding resources willing to discuss these ideas have resulted only in “pseudo-scientific” products focused more on twisting or discrediting science than dissecting the tenets of faith through it. For those of you frustrated by this, Finding God in the Waves will be refreshing as it discusses God, faith, and modern Christianity through the lens of accepted scientific claims. But this is no simple defense of orthodoxy. Mike pulls no punches as he lays out both the claims of faith and the criticisms, side by side, examining both in a clear, concise, and easily readable manner. This is the single most important book on faith, doubt, and science that I have ever read. Mike provides not only a rational understanding of God that works well within today’s understandings of science, but practical steps that anyone can implement to not only grow close to God, but to be transformed into what can only be described as the mind of Christ as well.
