Synopsis: This detailed and enlightening work synthesizes modern biology and traditional religious doctrines. The result of this synthesis is the creation of a cohesive worldview, and, from there, the emergence of a compelling morality. The author argues that as individuals and as groups, we have the opportunity to change old beliefs and to embrace more plausible ones that can help us to establish a secure (and even abundant) existence. Other books that attempt to merge current but contradictory themes have been criticized for being too long or too full of jargon. Readers will find that Biotheology makes this merge harmoniously. The book is divided into four parts: Biology; Theology; Biotheology in Individual Life; and Biotheology in Group Life. After presenting the relevant biological and theological principles, Cavanaugh explains the individual and societal benefits of synthesizing biology and theology. This thoughtful and clear analysis will help students who have trouble in classes like 'Science & Religion' or 'Philosophy & Religion.' In addition, scholars who are familiar with the data and ideas presented will benefit from Cavanaugh's compact and useful arrangement of this information. Finally, laypersons and pastors who are struggling to find a worldview compatible with both science and traditional theology will want to read this refreshing view of how to live harmoniously with one another and with 'God.'

Review: ...the volume can be fully recommended to students wishing to get into the issues discussed and to any person desiring to review his or her religious world-view in the light of a consistent up-to-date model.>>>> (European Society For The Study Of Science & Theology)

A wide-ranging, well documented and closely argued challenge to at least part of one's deep-seated tapestry of belief and action, presented in an above-average reader-friendly manner.>>>> (K. Helmut Reich European Society For The Study Of Science & Theology)

This is a most interesting book which covers a wide range of topics. I think it should be read by everyone interested in the relationship between science and religion. I have gained from it, and I am sure that other readers will do the same.>>>> (Michael Ruse European Society For The Study Of Science & Theology)

...an important guidebook for revitalizing contemporary religious beliefs that have lost compelling force and even credibility for a large fraction of our society because they have not been able to incorporate scientific knowledge.>>>> (Michael Ruse Religion)
