A Worldview Approach to Science and Scripture

Geologist Carol Hill examines how numerous apparent conflicts between Scripture and science can be resolved by understanding the ancient worldview of the scriptural authors and how it differs from our modern, scientific worldview. This framework opens the door to clearing up longstanding questions, such as:

  • Are the Genesis patriarchs’ ages real numbers?
  • Are the days of creation actual 24-hour days?
  • Where was the Garden of Eden located?
  • Was Noah’s flood global or local?
  • Were Adam and Eve real people?
  • Is evolution a belief or a fact?

With photographs and diagrams throughout, Hill explores the meaning of the relevant biblical passages, the scientific data, and how the worldview approach addresses seeming contradictions. Anyone who has wrestled with these questions will find A Worldview Approach to Science and Scripture to be an invaluable resource for understanding the interplay between faith and the world.

“Carol Hill takes both Scripture and science seriously, affirming the inspiration of the Bible and the evidence for biological evolution.” –Deborah Haarsma, President of BioLogos

This is one of the best one-volume works on the creation/evolution dialogue in print.” –Kenneth Keathley, Southeastern Baptist Theological Seminary

“Carol Hill’s worldview approach brings the reader face-to-face with archeological, biblical, and scientific data that enable one to gain a new appreciation for what the Bible is trying to teach. This approach is a very helpful tool!” –James K. Hoffmeier, Trinity Evangelical Divinity School


We need your help.

Dear Reader,

As Christians, we know through God’s Word how much he loves us—that we are ”fearfully and wonderfully made” and to be image bearers among his expansive, divine creation.

Sadly, this view isn’t always accepted among the church and the world.

Many Christians today still don’t accept the findings of modern science, and that affects everything from caring for God’s creation to getting vaccinated. Many are also departing or rejecting the faith over the perceived science and faith conflict.

This is where you can help.

BioLogos has become a trusted resource for so many who may have a fear or distrust in science. But we need to do more. With your gift to our summer fundraising campaign, we can show how science and faith work hand in hand to create a better world.
