From the Back Cover:

This text introduces readers to the fascinating interaction of science and religion. It is specifically designed for students on science and religion courses who have little or no prior knowledge in either area .

The book offers unusually wide coverage, looking at the historical, theological, philosophical and scientific aspects of the interaction of science and religion. It is also thoroughly up-to-date, and includes interaction with issues raised by Richard Dawkins concerning evolution, and the 'anthropic principle' in relation to cosmology. Although focusing mainly on Christianity, the text also indicates the importance of other religions.

Alister McGrath, the best-selling author of Christian Theology: An Introduction and other successful theological texts, is known for the clarity of his writing. He has studied widely in both science and religion and is therefore well-placed to write the ideal text for science and religion courses.

About the Author:

Alister E. McGrath studied natural sciences at Oxford University, gaining a doctorate in molecular biology, before turning his attention to the study of theology. He is Principal of Wycliffe Hall, Oxford and Research Lecturer in Theology at Oxford University. He is the author of numerous works in the field, including the best-selling Christian Theology, An Introduction (second edition Blackwell Publishers 1996). He also serves on the editorial board of the journals Science and Religious Belief and Science and Spirit magazine.
