This is an excellent book, written by two expert working scientists, on current views, discussions and understanding of where science, religious belief and modern ethics meet.
It will be of great interest to scientists and educated lay persons; to persons who have christian belief and to those who simply wish to enquire, understand and explore the fascinating and important themes presented in the book.
Many recent similar books have taken the preface that "God is absent" from all areas of science, especially those dealing with enquiry into origin of life, evolution, modern genetics, and ethical challenges. These are interesting opinions and views - but it is equally important that the widest range of views, opinions and beliefs are considered and evaluated in relation to these mind and life challenging topics.
Denis Alexander and Rob White successfully draw the reader's attention to a number of fundamental questions about life and how modern ethics produce a challenge to our thinking and behaviour. Using geological, geochemical, physical, biological, biochemical and other appropriate material, the authors comment, discuss and draw conclusions that will introduce, interest and instruct readers in a positive way towards an understanding of many important scientific and ethical challenges that we face in today's modern world.
Buy a copy (and get one for your friends), you will enjoy the read and appreciate the questions and answers that we all need to consider.
