Many individuals inside and outside of the church feel that science and faith are incompatible. An oft-repeated story is that of the active youth group member who heads off to the state university only to have their Christian faith shredded by a professor. However, these questions are bubbling to the surface at an earlier age as high school and even junior high students, particularly in our STEM-obsessed society, are faced with these issues. Church members, parents, and church staff, particularly youth ministers, are often unprepared to face the questions young people raise and can easily fumble the question. Exploding Stars, Dead Dinosaurs, and Zombies: Youth Ministry in the Age of Science provides a much needed and engaging resource to help with these questions.
