Dr. Wayne Rossiter, assistant professor of biology at Waynesburg University, recently released his latest book, “Mind Over Matter: The Necessity of Metaphysics in a Material World.”
“Today, Christians are routinely mocked and ridiculed as being ignorant and out of step with modern science and philosophy,” said Rossiter. “This book offers a defense against these charges by offering sound responses to the most common arguments mounted against faith in God.”
The book provides a practical and easy-to-use guide for anyone looking to respond to the toughest and most common objections to religious faith.
Rossiter’s new book, in addition to a previous book, “Shadow of Oz: Theistic Evolution and the Absent God,” have provided Rossiter with the opportunity to be a guest on multiple podcast shows discussing the ideas behind his publications.
He recently participated in a series of podcasts on “ID the Future” and Tom Wheaton’s “The University Next Door,” as well as an interview on WORD-FM in Pittsburgh, Pa. He anticipates appearances on Greg Koukl’s “Stand to Reason” and David Wheaton’s “The Chrisitian Worldview” in the near future.
“I think it’s just fun to see how others in your field have interpreted your work, and the sorts of questions or concerns they have,” said Rossiter.
Rossiter has also been invited to speak at the University of Pennsylvania’s Erie campus and 2016 Christian Scientific Society conference. Additionally, he has been contacted by a parochial school in Philadelphia, Pa., about their interest in using his latest book on a large scale, and a minister in Malawi who thanked him for the book and has asked for his help in their mission field.
Rossiter believes the 18 to 34 year-old group is the most engaged in the issues like the ones covered in his book, which is why he feels his work can benefit Waynesburg University students.
Rossiter received his B.S. from Otterbein University, his M.S. from Ohio State University and his Ph.D. from Rutgers University.
