Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher
"A valuable addition to the literature on the growing field of science and religion. Highly recommended."
Choice

"These days, whenever the words "science" and "religion" are brought together, they are likely to conjure up other words like "debate", "conflict", and "inevitable". That set of associations, real or imagined, is the underlying subject of this remarkable book. It distills an enormous amount of scholarship relating to a fascinating set of subjects of contemporary importance in the form of well-researched and nicely written set of essays brought together in honor of the British historian John Hedley Brooke. It celebrates his work in redefining, one might almost say, defining away, the notion of conflict between science and religion."
