Editorial Reviews

Review

the editors have been very skillful ... I hope I have said enough to indicate the richness, reach and seriousness of this weighty contribution. Christopher Southgate, Science & Christian Belief This volume offers an impressive combination of breadth and clarity: breadth in the inclusion of experts from all the major world religions and scientific disciplines, and clarity in focusing attention on the similarities and differences among these diverse traditions and disciplines. Of particular interest is a section presenting pro and con views on eight issues currently debated in this burgeoning interdisciplinary field. Ian G. Barbour, Author of When Science Meets Religion ...compelling new perspectives upon a wide range of subjects in the humanities and social sciences under the topic of religion and science. Dr. Horst Jesse, European Legacy

Format: Hardcover
This massive, impeccably crafted edited volume represents the very best thinking in science-and-religion so far, with two exceptions (which I shall come to in a moment). The original essays featured show that science-and-religion is a field of inquiry which has truly come of age and is of immense relevance to broader academic discussions. The first part consists of relatively brief introductions to the field as seen from the standpoint of particular religious traditions (Christianity, Judaism, Islam, Hinduism, etc.). Especially interesting are those from a Buddhist and Hindu perspective, as they do not often feature in Western discussions. It is clear, however, that both religious traditions have sophisticated perspectives to offer and at least one impressive research program in the form of scientific studies of meditation.

The second part deals with particular issues in science-and-religion, such as evolution, cosmology, etc. Here there are not many new reflections on offer, as they aim to provide a general map of different issues to take into consideration. The third part is considerably more interesting, as we examine the contributions which specific disciplines can make to the discussion, such as philosophy of science, history, systematic theology, etc. It is here where the interdisciplinarity of the field becomes most evident. Religion-and-science is truly all-encompassing, and the best work in the future will have to draw on all these different disciplines. Part four highlights some particular approaches to the discussion, including naturalism (a remarkable essay by Owen Flanagan), post-modernity (Nancey Murphy), etc.

Very thorough yet accessible to those who are new to the subject. If this subject interests you, I'm betting this is a staple on the shelf, along with the Bible. Also, Anything Philip Clayton writes or edits is guaranteed to be among the very best.

Format: Paperback
Leave this book for the libraries. It has some helpful info, but overall it's a mess. In two other words: academic sprawl. A far better handbook is Campbell and Looy's Science and Religion Primer, A.
