Comprising papers by such distinguished scholars as John Headley Brooke, James R. Moore, Ronald Numbers, and George Marsden, this collection shows that questions of science have been central to evangelical history in the United States, as well as in Britain and Canada. It is an invaluable resource for understanding the historical context of contemporary political squabbles such as the debate over the status of "creation science" and the teaching of evolution.show more

Review quote

This collection contributes significantly to understanding the encounter between science and religion in the period studied. * American Historical Review 18/04/2002 * The essays succeed brilliantly in their essential purpose of demonstrating that the many encounters between Evangelicals and science, far fom being a mere ideological Punch and Judy show, are deserving of the most careful investigation from historians and theologians alike. * Theology * Has much to say to historians of science ... these essays are all fascinating ... this is a beginning rather than an ending, and for making that start, it is to be commended. * British Journal for the History of Science * Here is a book to savour and enjoy. It is a scholarly volume, pleasingly produced. * Brethren Archivists & Historians Network Review * We give a warm recommendation to a scholarly and stimulating book. * Brethren Archivists & Historians Network Review *show more
