John S. Carpenter, Be Not Afraid to Follow the Footprints from Heaven (2016) and He is Alive: Science Finds Jesus (2018)
AbstractJohn S. Carpenter's contribution investigating mystical beliefs through scientific and biological evidence is exceptional in his two recent books, Be Not Afraid to Follow the Footprints from Heaven (2016) and He is Alive: Science Finds Jesus (2018). In this regard, no one can devalue the work that science and the biological world have played in exploring mysterious things on earth. While appreciative of Carpenter's brilliance and sincere attempts at using scientific and biological means of witness, this review emphasizes the importance of taking a more biblical and theological approach—not to criticize Carpenter's views per se, but rather respectfully and gently to have him and his readers include biblical input as well.
