"The Blackwell Companions are a well-known and prestigious series that always form an up-to-date and high-quality entry to a certain academic domain ... My appreciation prevails and I believe this book really offers a most worthy introduction to the issue of science-Christianity relations. Congratulations to Stump and Padgett for putting together this valu­able collection of well-written essays." (Philosophia Reformata, 1 November 2015)
"As I said at the outset, this Blackwell Companion has proved itself to be an indispensable companion to me as I try to set out the current shape of the field for the third generation, but I cannot help but wonder how different such a volume will look in their time." (Modern Believing, 1 January 2014)
"The result is a fascinating, rich collection of fifty-four essays grouped into eleven major sections . . . To sum up, this volume nicely complements other recent works in the ongoing interaction between science and religion. Students and teachers in the field will find this volume an accessible, reliable, and up-to-date resource for the contemporary discourse between science and Christianity." (Themelios, 1 April 2013)
"For those who have such a background, this book will be a valuable asset for orienting themselves in the broader conversation." (Perspectives on Science and Christian Faith, 1 March 2013)
"Summing Up: Recommended. Upper-division undergraduates through researchers/faculty." (Choice, 1 December 2012)
