Product description


'The second edition maintains the five-book organizational structure, with book 1 expanded to include more introductory material related to the science and religion debate. The authors have preserved the suggested discussion exercises and the "note for teachers." The text contains numerous chapter citations for extended treatments of the topics in view, and is replete with notes and references. This book is an important core text for undergraduate or graduate courses in science and religion. Summing Up: Highly recommended. Lower-division undergraduates and up.'
J.A. Hewlett, Choice

'This new edition [is] the most broadly-based, maturely considered and lucidly written science-religion overview in the English language. For me, as for Arthur Peacocke, quoted on the cover, it is "an irreplaceable resource."'
Neil Spurway, ESSSAT News 16.2

'A valuable book'
Peter Ballantine ANVIL Vol. 24 No. 1, 2007

mention - W. Charles Heiser, Theology Digest, Vol. 52, No. 4, Winter 2005

'The first edition of this work was unique, in the science-and-religion field, of being a text eminently suitable both for beginners and for those working at its frontiers. This second edition eminently manifests the same admirable qualities by containing chapters - especially valuable for newcomers -expanding the history of the field and by critically surveying contentious issues which have arisen since the first one - such as the nature of divine action, panentheism, kenosis, and biotechnology. An irreplaceable resource.'--Dr Arthur Peacocke, Ian Ramsey Centre, Oxford

'Not only is God, Humanity and the Cosmos directly addressed to teachers and students, and as such manages to be remarkably accessible; it also carefully addresses all the contemporary issues in the field, but in such a way that it moves the theology and science debate to the cutting edge of the current conversation.' Professor J. Wentzel van Huyssteen, Princeton Theological Seminary

Praise for the first edition: 'This comprehensive work has the rare virtue of combining readableness with accurate and detailed judgements on the outstanding issues in past and contemporary interactions between science and religion. It is both the book for students we have been waiting for and also a refreshing survey of the field for those currently engaged in it.' Dr Arthur Peacocke, Ian Ramsey Centre, Oxford

'The invitation of the book to explore the two 'maps' together is one that anyone with integrity in either field should not decline.' Roz Mathews, Themelios, 32/1

'A good read and thought provoking on many topics ... A useful survey of many of the key issues in the science-religion debate and good introduction to the literature on the topic.' Meric Srokosz, Science & Christian Belief, 2008


This work is a fully updated new edition of this best-selling textbook in science and religion. This fully revised and updated edition of "God, Humanity and the Cosmos" includes new chapters by John Hedley Brooke, Paul D. Murray and David Wilkinson. In addition to a systematic exploration of contemporary perspectives in physics, evolutionary biology and psychology as they relate to theological descriptions of the universe, humanity and consciousness, the book now provides a thorough survey of the theological, philosophical and historical issues underpinning the science-religion debate. Contributors also examine such issues as theological responses to the ecological crisis and to biotechnology; how science is treated and valued in education; and the relation of science to Islamic thought.
