Item Description...
This text explores the relation of religion and the natural sciences, focusing specifically on Christianity as a case study. It explores the way in which religions and the natural sciences have different viewpoints in some areas but not in others. It develops the agenda set out by Thomas F. Torrance in his 1969 work Theological Science. Like Torrance, McGrath sees the need to examine the relation between Christian theology and the natural sciences at the level of method - that is to say, the way in which reality is apprehended, investigated, and represented. The study starts from three major points of investigation: the inexplicability of the world, the way in which our reflection on the nature of things is controlled or modulated by the way things are, and the way in which the external world is represented. This book should be of interest to those researching and studying in the areas of science and religion, Christian theology and history and the philosophy of science.

Reviews - What do our customers think?
I was Disappointed  Sep 30, 2003
I eagerly began this book sympathetic to its aim. Alister McGrath is highly knowledgable and provides a whole lot of information about theology and science that almost any reader will learn from. However, finding a foundation for dialog between religion and science is not accomplished between these pages. Instead what is provided over and over are facile similarities between the two - similarities which are more likely to tickle the devout theist qua theist than the devout scientist qua scientist. Again - the information provided is outstanding and the examples McGrath draws from are enlightening, but no bridge or foundation is ever effectively laid. One waits for it at every turn only for the chapter to end and a new one begin.

Another thing which jumped out at me were the countless spelling errors. I know that's usually a hair-splitting objection (and besides, I'm a terrible speller myself) but it truly stood out. A misspelled word every three pages or so it seemed.

I hated giving this book 3 stars when it had the potential for so much more.

I can't wait for the rest of this series...  Oct 9, 1999
Intended to the the first in a series of books on the subject, not only is McGrath qualified to write on the Subject (Ph.D. Molecular Bio-Physics and Ph.D. Philosophy), but does it in a way that will both keep the attention of the Scientist, and still be understood by the lay-person. I advise this be read by anyone interested in either subject, but even more-so by any Christian interested in persuing a career in the Sciences.
