Book Summary of Union With Christ by Rankin Wilbourne


Religion and science, in the modern era, are often viewed as entirely separate realms of inquiry. People avoid bringing matters of religion into discussions of science, and vice versa, but why is this the case?

There is an argument to be made that religion and the sciences actually have crucial areas of overlap. There’s an even bolder argument to be made that science, were it not for God, could not exist. 

The idea, then, is to engage the debate on science’s terms: Christians can treat God as a hypothesis, a conjecture like any other to be tested against the demands of reality. We will not seek to prove His existence by a particular apologetic argument or some meticulous set of rational steps, but will instead hypothesize His existence, examine the nature of our reality, and see if the hypothesis holds up.

If it does, then God will be shown to be a genuinely rational alternative to more typically ‘scientistic’ outlooks on reality.
