Very good discussion about Creation and Evolution.

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.
