Two New Books by Deacon Norm Carroll


Deacon Norm Carroll has written two new books representing his life-long work on how to blend biblical and scientific truth to co-create universal and unconditional love.
In Miracles, Messages and Metaphors: Unlocking the Wisdom of the Bible, Norm Carroll searches beyond the literal to embrace a biblical interpretation that is based on the meaning intended by the sacred author. Carroll probes critical characters and themes to draw spiritual significance from their historical context. Christ becomes an indwelling fulfillment of one’s possibilities in love and in truth as lived by Jesus of Nazareth. Truly, this understanding will help us to solve society’s and our own personal struggles while empowering us on our daily journey to Christ.

The Whole Story: The Wedding of Science and Religion – these pages represent more than a book. They represent a call to each of us for personal, societal, and cosmic wholeness. Science and religion have been at war for many centuries, and humanity is the loser. This book tackles and answers this all-important conflict, including even the long-debated problem of evil which Jesus addresses (but which is largely unknown) in his life and teachings. The critical significance of this resolution between science and religion is paramount. To solve this bitter fundamental hostility, the scientific community must be willing to view truth with an open mind even when deriving from the sanctuaries of religion. Contrarily, believers must accept God’s presence not as a quasi-human being (a sky-god) but as “thee” relationship of love pervading all creation. This book compels us to experience the truth of the words of Gary Zukav, “Love heals everything, and love is all there is”.
