Synopses & Reviews
A keen presentation of the arguments behind key issues of science and religion, designed to enable readers to make their own informed decisions on what they believe
In this thorough and engaging exploration into the worlds of science and faith alike, eminent scientist Russell Stannard presents nine probing chapters—creation, evolution, intelligent design, extraterrestrial intelligence, psychology, morality, miracles, the anthropic principle, and the relationship between science and belief. Presented simply and without bias, each opens with quotations from ordinary people expressing typical views on all sides of the argument, followed by Stannard delving deeper into the issues, presenting the case from all sides, and asking questions to enable the reader to make up his or her own mind.
