Jack Haas, the editor of Perspectives on Science and Christian Faith, the
journal of the American Scientific Affiliation has made available on-line
via the World Wide Web two papers from the journal. These are:


Obstacles And Opportunities In Science For Christian Witness by Robert
Kaita, Ph.D.
Plasma Physics Laboratory, Princeton University, Princeton, New Jersey 08543
[From Perspectives on Science and Christian Faith 45:112-115 (1993)]

Opening Paragraph:

"The topic "Obstacles and Opportunities in Science for Christian Witness"
is overwhelming, to say the least, so to keep the scope manageable, I
should state at the outset that there will not be much discussion of
apologetics as such in this paper. Instead, I will focus on the venues for
witnessing themselves, the new opportunities that recent events have
created, for example, in areas of the world formerly closed to Christian
witness. We also need go no further than our own scientific institutions,
where optimism and confidence are giving way to disillusionment, especially
among younger researchers.

It is obvious that even this subject cannot be possibly covered
comprehensively in the space of a single article, so myremarks will have to
be personal and anecdotal."



Christian Discipleship and the Challenge of Physics: Formation, Flux, and
Focus, by Robert John Russell
Center for Theology and the Natural Sciences, 2400 Ridge Road, Berkeley, CA
[From Perspectives on Science and Christian Faith: 42:139-154 (1990)]


The founder of the Center for Theology and the Natural Sciences
offers an
introspective autobiographical statement of his path to Christian
faith, to physics,
to theology, to teaching, and to leadership in the task of promoting
between science and Christianity.

This second article is relevant to a recent thread on the asa email
reflector on the subject of the relationship between questions of quantum
indeterminacy and God's governance of the universe.

My apologies to those who will get multiple copies of this announcement.

For those interested, these articles can be discussed in the asa email
reflector. To subscribe send email to majordomo@calvin.edu with "subscribe
asa" (no quotes) as the body of the message. Comments and questions can
