Book Review: Fearfully and Wonderfully Made
This book has been recommended to me for at least a decade now. I finally read it because of an invited book chapter (more on that later), and I am impressed. I'd like to do something like what Brand and Yancey do here, just on a different level. One of the interesting things is to watch closely how and where Brand specifically contradicts naturalism (not science, and not technology or scientific explanation, but reductionism and methodological naturalism). I find that he picks his battles and in general doesn't overstep, so he provides a good model for how to do that. In short, it was everything I had been told to expect -- and I sense a need for more like this. We'll see.
