An up to date and authoritative survey of the entire history of the relationship between science and Christianity
Fully illustrated and accessibly written, this guide includes a thorough introduction to the nature of scientific and theological enquiry, followed by an examination of each major scientific discipline and its engagement with Christianity. Famous events—such as Galileo's trial, Darwinian controversy, and creationism—as well as less well-known debates in the area are all covered. Recent scientific developments are explored including cloning, the human genome, genetically modified crops, nuclear power, artificial intelligence, and gravity as an explanation for the origins of the universe. The intelligent design movement and theories on how the world may end are also given consideration.
