From the Publisher
"Dealing with a diverse array of cultures, Science and Religion around the World offers the best one-volume introduction into how different peoples merge their understanding of nature and the supernatural. Without offering an apology for any particular viewpoint, the book's fourteen authors -- all experts in their fields -- show that science and religion can conflict, compliment, or simply co-exist. It all depends on what science, which religion and whose culture."
---Edward J. Larson, the Pulitzer-Prize winning author of Summer for the Gods: The Scopes Trial and America's Continuing Debate Over Science and Religion
"The authors of Science and Religion around the World view the many religions in a sympathetic light. They show very convincingly that each religious tradition includes facets that are open to science, lead to good science, and/or involve the real practice of a scientific discipline as an essential part of the religion."--Perspectives on Science and Christian Faith
"It's essays are thorough, balanced, and masterfully scholarly." --Journal of the American Academy of Religion
