Review quote

""Science, Faith, and Ethics: Grid or Gridlock?" by Denis Alexander and Robert S. White invites the reader to consider the interactions between modern science and religious faith. Faith in God, the writers maintain, should make a difference in how we view the world, especially when today's scientific advances are raising acute ethical questions. Both are committed Christians: Alexander is a biological scientist, and White is a physical scientist. The book is divided into two parts: Part 1 examines science and how it interacts with faith in God; Part 2 discusses the astounding issues active in modern science and explores the Christian's relation to them. Alexander and White maintain that such issues are so important to the good of all humanity that they belong in the Public Square where they can be opened for debate. Therefore, they have written this in a language that makes the book easy to understand for nonscientific readers."
