Science and Religion: A Very Short Introduction

by Thomas Dixon
New York: Oxford University Press, 2008. 144 pages.

At a scant 144 pages, Science and Religion certainly fits in the Very Short Introduction series. Yet Thomas Dixon, a historian of science and religion at Queen Mary, University of London, manages to cram a lot of information and analysis in the scope of his brief book, including discussions of the controversies surrounding evolution, from Darwin through Scopes to Kitzmiller."“It is no part of my aim ... to persuade people to stop disagreeing with each other about science and religion — far from it," Dixon explains. "My hope is only that it might help people to disagree with each other in a well-informed way."
