On this episode of ID the Future, Sarah Chaffee interviews author and science historian Melissa Cain Travis on her new book Science and the Mind of the Maker: What the Conversation Between Faith and Science Reveals About God. From Johannes Kepler to Max Planck, scientists have seen their work as much more than merely uncovering how things work; it’s a way of forging new insights into a greater reality. This book is a layman’s introduction into the world of their work, as well as a snapshot of the current state of intelligent design research.
