The Rev. Daniel J. Lepley of Seymour recently published a book, “On Our Origins.” The book, published by WestBowPress, explores the relationship between science and theology in the exploration of man’s origins. Lepley, 34, is a pastor at Redeemer Lutheran Church at Fifth and Walnut streets. He recently answered questions about the book and its writing:

What was the genesis of this “On Our Origins”?

Last August, I had a parent ask me for a book that she could give her child who was going into college that would prepare her to defend her faith while away from home and away from her church home. I have lots of resources, but I didn’t have that one book that I felt adequately dealt with the faith/science issues sure to come up at college. So I told her I would try to put some things together, did some research and started writing. I didn’t start intending to write a book, but by the end of November I had all but the last two chapters written. Work on the book slowed during the holidays, but a few weeks after a trip to Israel in January, my first manuscript was submitted.
