Some great articles on theism and science, especially mathematics

Whilst doing a little research, I've come across a web page giving an index of a number of articles by Professor John Byl, head of department of Mathematics at Trinity Western University in Canada. I reviewed his excellent book "The Divine Challenge: On matter, mind, math & meaning" last March, here.
