“As I said at the outset, this Blackwell Companion has proved itself to be an indispensable companion to me as I try to set out the current shape of the field for the third generation, but I cannot help but wonder how different such a volume will look in their time.” (Modern Believing, 1 January 2014)
“The result is a fascinating, rich collection of fifty-four essays grouped into eleven major sections . . . To sum up, this volume nicely complements other recent works in the ongoing interaction between science and religion. Students and teachers in the field will find this volume an accessible, reliable, and up-to-date resource for the contemporary discourse between science and Christianity.” (Themelios, 1 April 2013)
“For those who have such a background, this book will be a valuable asset for orienting themselves in the broader conversation.” (Perspectives on Science and Christian Faith, 1 March 2013)
“Summing Up: Recommended. Upper-division undergraduates through researchers/faculty.” (Choice, 1 December 2012)
The Blackwell Companion to Science and Christianity
is a marvelous volume, with a wide-ranging roster of contributions from respected science-and-religion scholars. I commend Stump and Padgett for covering all the important bases, but also including a few surprises thrown in for good measure.
