This book is about the clash between science and religion, which began in the nineteenth century during the Victorian Era with the "invention" of evolution. The Victorian Era is characterized as a period of romanticism, innocence and naivety. It was in this setting that evolution was introduced, based on the idea that life began with a single cell organism in the waters of earth, and through a series of changes, which occurred without reason, planning or intelligent thought, has become what we know as today's earth.
Vehemently opposed to this view are religious beliefs that originate from ancient scriptures written by prophets and other unknown writers. These texts make up the Old Testament.
Does the truth lie somewhere between these two extremes?
After 150 years of conflict, "The Awakening" peels back the layers of biblical misinterpretations and flawed scientific theories to reveal a unique concord between science and religion and solves the age-old dilemma...what to believe.
