"synopsis" may belong to another edition of this title.
This fascinating work documents theologian Gilkey's participation as an expert witness in the 1981 trial over the constitutionality of the Arkansas law requiring that creation science be taught alongside evolution in the public schools. As a theologian, Gilkey argued that creationism is religion, not science, and therefore inappropriate to a science curriculum. As an account of the trial, the book is lively reading; more important, it is also a penetrating analysis of both the religious and the scientific case against creationism. Always erudite but never pedantic, Gilkey presents his ideas so lucidly that someone with the merest smattering of knowledge can follow them. Anyone who is concerned about the religious and scientific issues involved in the creationist controversy should read this book. D. Stephen Rockwood, Mt. St. Mary's College, Emmitsburg, Md.
