Faith & Science by Trent Horn explains “the complex but ultimately harmonious relationship between religious and scientific truth.”

As a Catholic engineer, I was particularly excited to read this book. This book not only met but exceeded my expectations, and I couldn’t put the book down. Horn addresses a wide array of topics in this short booklet: misconceptions about Church history and famous scientists, the reasons science doesn’t disprove religion, and how faithful Catholics can respond to accusations they are anti-science. What I liked about the style of questions was they sounded like questions opponents of Catholicism on the grounds of science might ask even though to a Catholic reader, they may seem odd. In fact, I have actually been asked some of these questions. By addressing the questions of this style, Horn presents more realistic apologetics scenario. I admired Horn’s responses because he answered the questions intelligently and also addressed why many were the wrong questions to be asking. I cannot recommend this book enough!
