A rich introductory text...on the study of relations of science and religion. (R. P. Whaite, Metascience)
A marvellous book that should be required reading for dogmatic fundamentalists of every persuasion. (Patricia Fara, British Journal for the History of Science)
Dixon shows great skill in composing a book which combines coherence and clarity with a strong forward momentum... The interested reader need not hesitate. (Michael Fuller, The Expository Times)
Bracing initiation (Observer.)
The relationship between science and religion, past and present, is much more varied and more interesting than the popular caricature of conflict. Thomas Dixon gives us the richer picture, and he does it with clarity and verve. This is an ideal introduction to a fascinating subject. (Peter Lipton. University of Cambridge)
Thomas Dixon has made a delightful contribution to this OUP series of Very Short Introductions. (Church Times)

There was much to discuss and a really good overview of the main issues where scientific discovery and understanding impinges on faith, and religious interpretation of life.
The brief section on quantum theory were also nicely presented. I only wish this particular area was expanded upon in greater depth!
Overall, a very neat little book and one which i will be coming back to for reference.
It is a useful "snapshot" of the subject, highlighting the well known"flashpoints" such as Galileo and Darwin, and the increasingly controversial debate, in view of the recent developments in neuroscience and psychology, about Mind and Morality (or Mind and Matter).
Strongly recommended as a starter.
