Religion and Science: Historical and Contemporary Issues, revised edition

by Ian Barbour
San Francisco: HarperOne, 1997. 384 pages.

In Religion and Science, Barbour actually provides more than just a little history. In fact, he presents a thorough historical theological treatment of major themes in science. This volume is not for the faint of heart or the casual reader, but it may be the definitive text for basic courses in science and religion. "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," writes the reviewer for Religious Studies Review. Barbour was the recipient of the 1999 Templeton Prize for Progress in Religion.
