Description

What happens when religious faith meets scientific facts?

Many believe that conflict defines the relationship between science and religion, especially the Christian religion. But the war between faith and science is a myth—a very popular myth—that has endured for too long.

By investigating the root of this myth and reexamining its classic stories, Science and Religion: Beyond Warfare and Toward Understanding offers a more accurate relationship between science and religion. With a focus on Christianity, the text explores causes of contemporary conflicts as well as cases in which science and religion have interacted in mutually beneficial ways to demonstrate that, in the relationship between science and religion, harmony is more common than discord.
