Editorial Reviews

Review

The lectures gathered in this collection are all by eminent figures ifrom both within and beyond science. Intended for a wide audience, they together illuminate in masterful fashion the most perplexing problems at the interface of science and religion. Anyone who believes that this is God's world will find much of compelling interest here. Others should see the crucial importance for human reason of the arguments considered. -- Roger Trigg The revival of the Boyle lectures in the 21st century was a most imaginative way of connecting the current dialogue between 'science' and 'religion' (as we now call them) with the original Boyle lectures, first given in 1692. The first ten Boyle lecturers of modern times are a roll call of the leading figures in contemporary world of science and religion, and these lectures are an excellent and accessible guide to the current debates, covering physics, evolutionary biology and the human sciences. -- Fraser Watts Science and Religion in the 21st Century is an important collection of Boyle lectures delivered by leading scholars in the interaction between science, philosophy and theology. Topics range from evolution and emeregence to cosmology and the psychology of religious beliefs. I strongly recommend this book to scholars and the general public interested in cutting edge thinking about science and religion. --Robert Russell

Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
An excellent collection of essays on the current state of the science-religion dialogue. Each lecture is by a well-known scholar who takes a balanced approach to the discussion. The book avoids the "science and religion are enemies" stereotype that is virtually all the popular press reports and summarizes the diverse approaches to the topic by many of the leading scholars involved in the field. A fine collection.
