The June 2016 issue of Perspectives on Science and Christian Faith, the peer-reviewed academic journal of the ASA and CSCA, has arrived in Canadian mailboxes. As is often the case, there are a good number of Canadian contributions to this issue, which we highlight below. If you are not yet a member of CSCA, the journal may be available in an academic library near you.

CSCA Past President and PSCF Editor James C. Peterson opens the issue with a brief editorial about its theme, entitled “Natural evil and the love of God.” This is followed by Canadians writing two of the four main articles and three of the nine book reviews. Of course there are other valuable articles, communications, and reviews, but we are highlighting these below for their “Canadian content.”
