'Every student of science and religion will find this book informative, useful, and stimulating.' Theological Book Review
'… there is a great deal here to interest and stimulate the general reader as well as the academic specialist.' The Expository Times
'These days, whenever the words 'science' and 'religion' are brought together, they are likely to conjure up other words like 'debate', 'conflict', and 'inevitable'. That set of associations, real or imagined, is the underlying subject of this remarkable book. It distills an enormous amount of scholarship relating to a fascinating set of subjects of contemporary importance in the form of well-researched and nicely written set of essays brought together in honor of the British historian John Hedley Brooke. It celebrates his work in redefining, one might almost say, defining away, the notion of conflict between science and religion.' Science and Education
Bringing together leading scholars, this volume explores the complex histories of religious engagements with science, and challenges the idea of an inevitable conflict between the two disciplines. A major contribution to the historiography of science and religion, it makes the most recent scholarship on this much misunderstood debate widely accessible.See all Product description
