Four substantive introductory essays set the book's background. The second, and primary, section of the book provides an A-Z listing of almost 100 entries dealing with a variety of philosophical, historical, scientific, and theological concepts, individuals, or events related to the SR dialogue.
A Science and Religion Primer promotes a respectful, intelligent conversation between science and faith. It is an indispensable source in its own right and a springboard for more in-depth research.
"Heidi Campbell and Heather Looy have put together an excellent collection of essays on the relationship between science and religion, nicely mirroring the current reach of science and religion scholarship. Most of the articles are apt. Many are outstanding. This volume will serve as a very handy reference guide for both scholars and laypersons."--David C. Lindberg, Hilldale Professor Emeritus of the History of Science, University of Wisconsin-Madison
"This new book by Campbell and Looy provides an excellent point of entry into the burgeoning international dialogue on science and religion. The introductory essays are from leaders in the field and will give newcomers a clear sense of the background issues that shape the current discussion."--F. LeRon Shults, professor of theology, University of Agder Institute for Religion, Philosophy, and History
