Introducing Science and Religion: A Path Through Polemic [9780281068739]

(No reviews yet) Write a Review

The debates between science and religion are more alive than ever in the 21st century. It is common to portray the two as locked in an intractable conflict, and that the only tenable, rational and intellectual position is atheism. This is a myth, and a dangerous myth too. This book offers a toolkit for those who believe in God and science, and desire to hold them together with integrity. By examining the history of the interaction between science and religion, biblical and theological ideas and the key areas of science, such as the origin of the universe, evolution and human consciousness, the reader is equipped to decide which path they will take through these crucial debates. These paths offer ways of balancing both a focused understanding of science and an active faith in God that takes the Bible seriously.


AUTHOR: Gillian Straine completed her undergraduate studies and her PhD in physics at Imperial College, London. Her research was in experimental atmospheric physics, and she also trained in science communication. Later she trained as an Anglican Priest, gaining an Oxford BA in Theology.
