Hendrickson Publishers Exploring Science and Belief

Some scientists have religious beliefs, while others do not. However, science and religion are both very important fields of study. The view that science and belief are in conflict is a major stumbling block for many people today. Do we have to choose between them? Michael Poole addresses this very issue in Exploring Science and Belief. By taking an in-depth look at some perceived incompatibilities between the two Poole offers a concise, clear and thorough introduction to the topic, ideal for both general readers and students.

Includes topics & questions such as:
  • Is science the ultimate test of what to believe?
  • Do its laws make belief in miracles impossible?
  • Has Darwin's work ruled out the idea of a creating God?
  • How did the universe develop?
  • Was it accidental or planned?
  • What will happen to it eventually?
  • Do we have any significance in it?

    The book has a very good quality, plenty of illustrations and important quotations from numerous scientists. It brings a overview about the interaction between science and religious belief. I think the only problem: the author didn't go deeper in the earth's age question. You can easily identify him as Old-Earth creationist and also as evolutionist believer. He criticized slightly the Young-Earth Creationism. However, from his explanation about science and religious purposes, he gives some interesting and unexpected solutions.
