Product description

This undergraduate textbook provides an introduction to the apparently incompatible subjects of religion and science.

Part One of the book consists of four chapters covering the nature of god as revealed by scientific miracles, such as the Big Bang, the origin of life, consciousness, and the development of ethics. The author takes purely scientific discoveries and shows how they can be used to hypothesize about God.

The second part of the book considers the historical relationship between science and Christian theology, then goes on to look at the historical development of areas of Christian thought that have created division between science and religious faith. The example of Christian theology is a basis for the same analysis to take place with other religions.

The final chapters examine how any given religion can achieve a synthesis between religious faith and scientific understanding.
