A Science and Religion Primer
Full Product Description
Heidi Campbell and Heather Looy assembled A Science and Religion Primer to guide a respectful, intelligent conversation. This landmark work is simultaneously an encyclopedia, an annotated bibliography, and a survey. What's more, the stalwart advisory board for this singular project is made up of:
- Celia Deane-Drummond
- Nancey Murphy
- George F. R. Ellis
- Peter Harrison
- Holmes Rolston III
- Craig A. Boyd
Four substantive introductory essays--from Harrison (History and People in Science and Religion), Murphy (The Role of Philosophy in Religion-Science Dialogue), Deane-Drummond (Theology's Intersection with Science and Religion), and Rolston (Science and Technology in Light of Religion)--set the book's background. The second, and primary, section of the book provides an A-Z listing of entries dealing with a variety of philosophical, historical, scientific, and theological concepts, individuals, or events related to the SR dialogue. Each one is divided into three parts: a brief summary/definition of the concept, a key points and challenges section that identifies significant issues, and a "discussion partners" section that lists key related readings. A Science and Religion Primer is an indispensable source in its own right and a springboard for more in-depth research.

A Science and Religion PrimerIan Gibbs, via The Good Book Stall
The title of this book is not only self explanatory, but true. The ‘Entries’ section – the bulk of the book – contains stimulating contributions from academics from all over the Western university world, though the majority are from America. In addition the entries are preceded by four essays on Science and Religion. As one would expect, Darwin, Creation, Evolutionary Biology and psychology, have entries, but so do less popular subjects such as Robert Boyle, Kenosis, and Ptolemy, each entry carries a helpful bibliography and altogether the usefulness of this volume is hard to over-estimate; it is a reference book not to be missed.
