The Serpent's Promise: The Bible Interpreted Through Modern Science Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

In , Steve Jones retells many of the Biblical tales in the light of modern science. Are we all descended from a real-life Adam and Eve? Are some--or all--of us marked with the molecular equivalent of original sin, and if so what can we do about it? Was the Bible's great flood a memory of the end of the Ice Age? And what can science tell us of the mystical experiences reported by the faithful, or of the origin of faith itself? Some people deny the power of religious belief, others the findings of science. In this groundbreaking work from one of our great science writers, Steve Jones explores how these mysteries often overlap. He steps aside from the noisy debate between believers and non-believers to show how the questions that preoccupy us today are those of biblical times--and that science offers many of the answers. At once brilliantly erudite and highly readable, is a witty and thoughtful account of the greatest scientific story ever told.

Synopsis:

From acclaimed geneticist Steve Jones, the story of the Bible as told through the lens of modern science.
