Product Description

The dialogue between science and religion has usually been complimentary while sometimes being perceived as at odds with each other. Science in the West was largely based on Christian ideals and practiced by Christians, but an atheistic influence has held sway for a century, leading to a division between traditional, Bible-believing science and modern, secular science based more on Darwinian evolution. This has been the impetus of much discussion, leading to the publication of this book, an attempt to provide a jumping-off point to understand the discussion. Leaning more toward the secular understanding of science, the editors have assembled dozens of experts to write almost a hundred articles concerning the interaction between religion and science. Each signed entry is replete with a summary of the entry, a list of significant issues concerning it, and a short annotated bibliography.

Publisher's Description

A Science and Religion Primer is a unique resource: an encyclopedia, an annotated bibliography, and a survey of the relationship between two equally complex fields. Editors Heidi Campbell and Heather Looy begin their work with four chapters from expert contributors: history of the science and religion dialogue, the role of philosophy in the science and religion dialogue, theology's intersection with the science and religion dialogue, and science and technology in light of religion. Entries cover such diverse topics as philosopher of science Karl Popper, the anthropic principle, Gaia, theodicy, hermeneutics, Intelligent Design, and more. Professors and students of theology, religion, and science--at both the undergraduate and graduate levels--will welcome this contribution. A Science and Religion Primer is an accessible and affordable contribution to interdisciplinary studies and provides a respectful conversation between science and faith.
