About this title


Scientific discoveries have posed a challenge to traditional religion ever since the Renaissance. This is especially true of the last century, when the pace and extent of scientific activity has grown by leaps and bounds. One result of this unprecedented development is the widespread perception that traditional understandings of religion are no longer valid.
Traditionalist interpretations of Jewish teaching have fared no better in this regard. Most of those outside the Orthodox camp have convinced themselves that fundamental Orthodox dogmas - and the practices based on obsolete ideas of nature - must be compromised in order to bring Judaism into the modern age.
Written for non-scientists, Torah and Science carefully, methodically, and succinctly presents a clear description of what science claims to know in the areas of perceived conflict - and the ideas those claims are based on.
In addition, the author examines the words of the Torah and our sages regarding the nature of the world and the rules that govern it. He concludes that the fundamentals of Judaism, when properly viewed, have nothing to fear from modern science.
