Rigid adherence to scientism―as opposed to a healthy respect for science―is all too prevalent in our world today. Rather than leading to a deeper understanding of our universe, this worldview actually undermines real science and marginalizes morality and religion. In this book, celebrated philosopher J. P. Moreland exposes the self-defeating nature of scientism and equips us to recognize scientism’s harmful presence in different aspects of culture, emboldening our witness to biblical Christianity and arming us with strategies for the integration of faith and science―the only feasible path to genuine knowledge.

“With cross-disciplinary depth and precise argument, J. P. Moreland not only puts science back in its lane, he defines the lane—and in doing so rescues true science from self-destructive overreach.” David Schmus, executive director, Christian Educators Association International
“[Moreland] makes a persuasive case that fields like philosophy, morality, and theology yield genuine knowledge.” Nancy Pearcey, author of Total Truth
