In a culture that perceives Christianity and science to be incompatible, it’s “critical” for Christians to understand that all of creation points to a divine Creator, hymn writers Keith and Kristyn Getty have said.

“[S]o much in our culture is dead set in thinking that Christianity and science are at odds with one another,” Kristyn Getty told The Christian Post. “But we need to be students of our doubts and our questions and have the confidence to follow through with them.

“Christianity can hold up to them. We don’t need to worry about it toppling over. It’s important to figure out what our doubts are and have the courage to ask deep questions because sooner or later, our faith will be tested. It’s critical for us to know who it is that we believe in and what we believe in.”

The Irish-born songwriters recently released “Consider the Stars,” the theme song for the upcoming film “Against the Tide: Finding God in an Age of Science.”

Penned by the Gettys and Fionán de Barra and sung by Kristyn Getty, the song is a contemplative lullaby that includes the lyrics: “Consider the stars in the sky/When it is darkest they shine out the brightest/Consider the stars in the sky/In every anguish, Oh, child take courage.”

The parents of four little girls, the Gettys wanted to write a song that would “sing truth over them and give them comfort in a simple, beautiful way.”

“As they go to sleep, we want them to consider the stars in the world that God has made. It’s both inspiring in terms of the vastness of it, but also hugely comforting because even in its vastness, the God who made it all is intimately involved in every single part of our lives,” Kristyn explained.

“Just like He holds the stars in place, He holds us,” she continued. “We loved the idea of using the world that God has made to explain that beautiful truth.”

“Against the Tide: Finding God in an Age of Science,” a theatrical-length documentary, shares the quest of University of Oxford mathematician John Lennox to “stand against the tide of false information attacking Christianity by sharing the rational foundations of his belief.”

In the film, Lennox and “God’s Not Dead” actor Kevin Sorbo travel travel to key locations and thoughtfully address the arguments many atheists make against Christianity. The film argues that science and history not only align with Scripture but in fact complement and support the biblical narrative. “Against the Tide” hits theaters across the country November 19, 20 and 23.
