"...a great reference resource that addresses a wide variety of topics in religion, science, and the intersection between the two...entries are written for nonprofessionals in both religion and science, and are balanced and without obvious bias...very useful and is recommended for academic and public libraries."--ARBA (2004)
"Although some might disagree, science and religion are among the dominant cultural forces of our time. The conflict between them has lasted for thousands of years, but has intensified as new scientific discoveries challenge the intellectual and social dimensions of our world. Theologian Ian Barbour believes the conflict has resolved itself into four camps: conflict, dialogue, independence, and integration. The editors of this work think dialogue is the most useful approach and intend to make available information about the issues, interests, and constituencies contending in current dialogues. The set consists of over 400 signed articles by eminent scholars in science and religion on topics ranging from human and physical sciences through technology, theology, and religious thought. Each article first defines a scientific or religious topic and some recent advances in the field, then discusses the implications these advances may have for either science or religion. This is followed by position sttemetns by partisans to the dispute over the topic, an unbiased assessment of where the dialogue currently stands, and an excellent, up-to-date bibliography. A synoptic outline, annotated general bibliography, and an extensive index tie everything together. There is much of value here for general readers, scholars, theologians, and scientists. May the dialogue continue. Summing Up: Highly recommended. General and academic readers." -- Choice (November 2003)
