Understanding Religion and Science

Full Product Description

This is the fully comprehensive textbook covering the issues, methods and relations between religion and science throughout history and up to the modern day. Most texts on religion and science rightly focus on the effect of modern cosmology and biology on views about God and on the place of humankind in the universe. Many analyze current disputes about Intelligent Design. Some add useful material about notions the soul and inner freedom. A few offer thoughts about miracles. Others devote time to differences in methods in religion and science. "Understanding Religion and Science covers" all those topics well and clearly. This textbook also reviews relevant historical and philosophical background, showing, for example, that some ancient Christians speculated on how God might give order to history without having to intervene, or that the very earliest Christians did not believe in a naturally immortal soul. Finally, the text asks why people differ in their basic commitments, some giving priority to a religiously meaningful life, others willing to face even the most uncomfortable conclusions. The author suggests this may be a divide not easily bridged..This book will appeal to students of Religion and of Science and Religion Studies.

Understanding Religion and Science by Michael Horace Barnes was published by Continuum in March 2010. The ISBN for Understanding Religion and Science is 9781441118165.
