"Religion and Science" is a definitive contemporary discussion of the many issues surrounding our understanding of God and religious truth and experience in our scientific age. This is a significantly expanded and freshly revised version of "Religion in an Age of Science," winner of the American Academy of Religion Award for Excellence and the Templeton Book Award.
Ian G. Barbour - the premier scholar in the field - has added three crucial historical chapters on physics and metaphysics in the seventeenth century, nature and God in the eighteenth century, and biology and theology in the nineteenth century. He also added new sections on developments in nature-centered spirituality, information theory, and chaos and complexity theories.
"[M]agisterial in scope, balanced in perspective, rich in detail, and full of intellectual passion. For a generation to come, anyone setting out to explore the subtle relationships between science, religion, ethics, and technology will begin with Barbour as the guide."--"Religious Studies Review"
