Book Description

Emphasizing its historical, methodological and constructive dimensions, Religion and Science takes the pulse of pertinent current research as the interdisciplinary study of science and religion gains momentum.


"As promised in the subtitle, the book delivers topics historical, methodological, and dialogical...this would be a good choice for advanced reading in this vast field..." -- Religious Studies Review
"With over twenty-six contributing authors, the collection represents some of the most sophisticated voices within the diverse expanses of the contemporary science and religion dialogue... this book offers a rich banquet of issues and perspectives." -- William Grassie, Religious Studies Review
"Religion and Science is an exemplary book truly prepresentative of the state of science-religion scholarship. Reflecting the rigor and creativity characteristic of the field, its gifted editing gives diverse perspectives a coherent and instructive format." -- Nancy R. Howell Cross Currents
"In this scholarly and wide-ranging volume, many of the world's leading thinkers at the science-theology interface share their insights with each other and with the reader. New discoveries and concepts at the forefront of science are illuminating age-old theological questions, and demand clear, critical analysis. No finer collection of essays can be found that confronts these exhilarating challenges head-on. This impressive book is a must for students, scholars, and researchers alike." -- Paul Davies, author of The Mind of God
"Mark Richardson and Wesley Wildman have given us a rich resource, and have demonstrated convincingly that constructive dialogue between theology and science is alive and well. This book is a must for serious students." -- Lord John Habgood, former Archbishop of York
"...a valuable statement of the current discussion." -- Progress in Theology ...there is a clear line through the discussions, a recognition of limitations in understanding, and a welcome absence of the polemic often found in the field...One leaves this work with the impression that this is an exciting time for science-religion studies...
"...this book is an engrossing and well-conceived collection of essays... The substantial and thought-provoking essays in this book will be of serious interest to all those concerned with the interplay between science and theology." -- Religious Studies
