This is a book worthy of reading, digesting, and emulating in its close analysis of science and religion. The Warfare between Science and Religion will give the reader a trustworthy account of the most recent scholarship about the religion science nexus. -- Arie Leegwater, Calvin University * Perspectives on Science and Christian Faith * Historians of science have been attempting to destroy this myth-that science and religion have been perennially at war-for the past 40 years or so.

One of the virtues of this book is that it also looks at science and religion interactions in Islam and Judaism as well as Christianity. -- Peter Harrison and Charles J. Styles * Five Books *
