The Creation Controversy & the Science Classroom

by James W. Skehan and Craig E. Nelson
Arlington, VA: NSTA Press, 2000. 56 pages.

Consisting of two sections, "Modern Science and the Book of Genesis" by James Skehan and "Effective Strategies for Teaching Evolution and Other Controversial Topics" by Craig Nelson, The Creation Controversy & the Science Classroom aims to provide teachers with an understanding of the nature of science and the relationship between science and religion. Brian Alters described Skehan's contribution as "a concise, detail-rich history of some of the relevant issues concerning science and biblical scholarship, with a good relevant criticism of creationism woven throughout," and Nelson's as "to the point, with a great number of useful ideas and strategies packed in a short read."
