For many decades, militant atheism and religious dogmatism have fed off of each other. Each intellectual argument and rhetorical flourish acts as encouragement and cause for further passion in the other.

Into this mix, author Jonathan Clatworthy offers a different alternative: "to reject neither reason nor God, because believing in God makes sense."Clatworthy starts by outlining the history of our current problem. The antagonism between belief and science, he says, is the product of a unique history. The either/or dichotomy that emerged from this story is not inevitable and places us at odds with countless other cultures who find a way to hold the two in suspension.

Using the most common reasons for belief, including design, values, morality, and experience, Clatworthy creates a compelling tapestry that commends belief in God in the scientific age.

An essential read for anyone interested in science, spirituality, and faith in the modern world.
