Science and Religion: An Introduction
By: Alister E. McGrath
Blackwell Publishing / 1998 / Paperback
This text introduces readers to the fascinating interaction of science and religion. It is specifically designed for students on science and religion courses who have little or no prior knowledge in either area. The book offers unusually wide coverage, looking at the historical, theological, philosophical and scientific aspects of the interaction of science and religion. It is also thoroughly up-to-date, and includes interaction with issues raised by Richard Dawkins concerning evolution, and the 'anthropic principle' in relation to cosmology. Although focusing mainly on Christianity, the text also indicates the importance of other religions.
