edited by David C. Lindberg and Ronald L. Numbers
Chicago: University of Chicago Press, 2008. 368 pages.

A collection of historical case studies on conflict and cooperation between Christianity and science, edited by two leading historians of science, When Science and Christianity Meet includes a number of important articles relevant to the creationism/evolution controversy, such as David N. Livingstone's "Re-placing Darwinism and Christianity," Edward J Larson's "The Scopes trial in history," and Ronald L. Numbers's "Science without God: Natural laws and Christian beliefs." Reviewing the book for Isis, Peter J. Bowler wrote, "Taken together, these papers provide a comprehensive survey of current thinking on key issues in the relationships between science and religion."
