Editorial Reviews


As promised in the subtitle, the book delivers topics historical, methodological, and dialogical...this would be a good choice for advanced reading in this vast field... -- Religious Studies Review
With over twenty-six contributing authors, the collection represents some of the most sophisticated voices within the diverse expanses of the contemporary science and religion dialogue... this book offers a rich banquet of issues and perspectives. -- William Grassie, Religious Studies Review
Religion and Science is an exemplary book truly prepresentative of the state of science-religion scholarship. Reflecting the rigor and creativity characteristic of the field, its gifted editing gives diverse perspectives a coherent and instructive format. -- Nancy R. Howell Cross Currents
In this scholarly and wide-ranging volume, many of the world's leading thinkers at the science-theology interface share their insights with each other and with the reader. New discoveries and concepts at the forefront of science are illuminating age-old theological questions, and demand clear, critical analysis. No finer collection of essays can be found that confronts these exhilarating challenges head-on. This impressive book is a must for students, scholars, and researchers alike. -- Paul Davies, author of The Mind of God
Mark Richardson and Wesley Wildman have given us a rich resource, and have demonstrated convincingly that constructive dialogue between theology and science is alive and well. This book is a must for serious students. -- Lord John Habgood, former Archbishop of York
...a valuable statement of the current discussion. -- Progress in Theology ...there is a clear line through the discussions, a recognition of limitations in understanding, and a welcome absence of the polemic often found in the field...One leaves this work with the impression that this is an exciting time for science-religion studies...
...this book is an engrossing and well-conceived collection of essays... The substantial and thought-provoking essays in this book will be of serious interest to all those concerned with the interplay between science and theology. -- Religious Studies

More About the Author

Wesley J. Wildman (1961-present) was born in Australia and moved to the United States in 1987. Since 1993 he has been a professor at Boston University, in the Philosophy, Theology, and Ethics Department within the School of Theology. He teaches and writes in those areas, and also in religion and science issues--especially the scientific study of religion. To support the scientific study of religion, he co-founded the Institute for the Biocultural Study of Religion (http://www.ibcsr.org) and the instant-feedback survey site at ExploringMyReligion.org. His home page is http://people.bu.edu/wwildman/.

Most of his writing is for academic specialists (yawn) but he is also working to communicate academic research to a wider public. To that end, he maintains numerous websites, including ScienceOnReligion.org, LiberalEvangelical.org, and the Spectrums Project (www.spectrumsproject.org), which reflect rather different aspects of his intellectual and political interests.
