The closest relation to us is the Science and Christian Belief Journal.
I am tempted to get it when I go back and find the information for
ASAers getting it at a discount. I have been impressed by the scholarly
content of the few journals I have looked at. Jack Haas was kind enough to
loan me some back copies that I plan on returning to you this summer
Jack. Apparently a lot of the same folks hang out on a Christians in
Science group, which has their own e-mail list.

There is already a pretty good list of this and other lists with links
to them on a page that Steve

on that on the www. Look at Steve Schimmrich site at:
If you have a bookmark to the ASA home page there is a link from there

Below my signature I include the groups in Science and Christianity that
he links to.

Now I better get back to writing on paleoecology of Pennsylvanian coals.

In Christ
