Description

Fully illustrated and accessibly written, this is an up to date and authoritative survey of the entire history of the relationship between science and Christianity. A thorough introduction to the nature of scientific and theological enquiry is followed by an examination of each major scientific discipline and its engagement with Christianity. Berry covers famous events (Galileo's trial, Darwinian controversy, Creationism) and less well-known debates. Recent scientific developments are explored including cloning, the human genome, GM crops, nuclear power, artificial intelligence, and gravity as an explanation for the origins of the Universe. The Intelligent Design movement and theories on how the world may end is also given consideration.show more

Review quote

"The combination of sturdy Christian theology with equally sturdy scientific knowledge makes this a stellar book for reading straight through or a reliable resource for consulting individual topics." --Mark A. Noll, Francis A. McAnaney Professor of History, University of Notre Dame "This book will intrigue devotees of philosophy, scientific theory, Christianity, and history. Its readability is greatly enhanced by beautiful color illustrations and photographs." -- Library Journal "It is hard to decide what is the best feature of this wide-ranging handbook: its judiciously balanced text, strategically targeted sidebars, or its admirably selected illustrations. Packed with information of both historical and contemporary interest, this book bears witness to the congenial bonds between science and Christianity." --Owen Gingerich, Professor Emeritus of Astronomy & History of Science, Harvard-Smithsonian Center for Astrophysics "It is hard to decide what is the best feature of this wide-ranging handbook: its judiciously balanced text, strategically targeted sidebars, or its admirably selected illustrations.
