God, Life and the Cosmos: Christian and Islamic Perspectives is the first book in which Christian and Muslim scholars explore the frontiers of science-religion discourse. Leading international scholars present new work on key issues in science and religion from Christian and Islamic perspectives.
Following an introduction by the editors, the book is divided into three sections: the first explores the philosophical issues in science-religion discourse; the second examines cosmology; the third analyses the issues surrounding bioethics. One of the first books to explore aspects of science-religion discourse from the perspective of two religious traditions, God, Life and the Cosmos opens up new vistas to all interested in science and religion, and those exploring contemporary issues in Christianity and Islam.

Author Biography: Ted Peters, Professor of Systematic Theology, Lutheran Theological Seminary and Graduate Theological Union, Berkeley, USA; Muzaffar Iqbal, Director of the Center for Islam and Science (CIS), Canada, and Regional Director for Science and Religion at the Center for Theology and Natural Sciences (CTNS), Berkeley, USA and Syed Nomanul Haq, Professor of Religion, Rutgers University, USA
