Gerald Schroeder is a scientist, author and lecturer who holds a doctorate in earth sciences and physics. He focuses on what he calls the extraordinary confluence of modern science and ancient biblical commentary. Schroeder attempts to reconcile the biblical account of a young earth with the scientific model of a world that is billions of years old by using Einstein’s theory of general relativity, or the idea that the perceived flow of time for a given event in an expanding universe varies with the observer’s perspective of that event. He believes that the latest scientific discoveries and a close reading of the Bible are not just compatible but dependent on each other. He blames the misconception that science and faith must be at odds on mistranslations of the original biblical manuscripts and the concept of a God who never changes. His books, including Genesis and the Big Bang and The Science of God, have been printed in more than 10 languages.
