The Lion Handbook of Science and ChristianityDavid Ford, via The Good Book Stall
The relationship between science and Christianity has been a recurring theme of the past few years with the rise of what has been described as ‘militant atheism’. In this volume a highly respected and diverse group of scientists – including many active Christians - have collaborated to produce a book that traverses this theological and scientific minefield in a way that is both illuminating and accessible. The result is a book that swiftly persuades the reader that there is no division between these two apparently conflicting views of reality. The interaction of science with religion is a considerably more exciting endeavour than attempts to drive a wedge between the two.
Designed to be dipped into, rather than read through, the core of the handbook provides up to date explanations and commentary on very many of the latest and most topical areas of scientific enquiry (and their corollary areas of ethical or theological dispute) across the physical, earth and natural sciences. Invaluable though this is, the reader benefits enormously from reading the initial 200 pages first, as here will be found a very clear guide to the philosophical issues that have guided the development of scientific and religious thought for the last several thousand years.
This book has been a privilege and a pleasure to read. A privilege because of the depth of scientific knowledge and theological reflection that it contains; a pleasure because of the clarity of the authors’ writing and the sheer delight of the images it contains. Buy it for yourself as a treat or as a gift for someone whose natural curiosity you wish to nurture. Either way, you won’t be disappointed.
