    Review quote
    "Ian Barbour is the "doyen of contemporary writers on science and theology. In this survey of his thinking he writes with his customary well-organized clarity."--John Polkinghorne, author of "Belief in God in an Age of Science"Ian Barbour here distills a lifetime of thinking about how science and religion relate. In spanning the spectrum of the natural and the human sciences, he knows more about this than any other person on Earth, more, I suppose than any other in history. Couple this with his sure-footed capacity for balanced evaluation--a particular focus distinguishing this from his earlier books--and the result is outstanding."--Holmes Rolston, III, author, "Genes, Genesis and God, University Distinguished Professor, Colorado State University"At last we have a volume in religion and science by the pioneer of the field, Ian G. Barbour, which uses Barbour's now classic four-fold typology to address fundamental issues of importance to us all. This book will be an invaluable resource to teachers, scholars, ministers, scientists and everyday inquirers who want to become part of the positive and creative interaction now growing rapidly and internationally between religion and science. Read this book and prepare for a wondrous experience!"--Robert John Russell, Director of The Center for Theology and the Natural Sciences, Berkeley"No surer and fairer guide to the proliferating literature on the relation of science and religion can be found than Ian Barbour. In this volume he has made accessible the fruits of his extensive and scholarly studies to those coming new to the field. They, and also those alreadyinvolved in it, will welcome this elegantly organised and presented work."--ArthurPeacocke, Oxford University, author of "From DNA to Dean: Reflections & Explorations of a Priest-Scientist
