Comprehensive, up to date, and engaging, Science, Evolution, and Religion provides detailed coverage of the science-religion debate in contemporary culture and academia. The two authors, Michael Peterson and Michael Ruse, present theism and atheism, respectively, and argue for their positions. Peterson occasionally draws from Christian doctrine to supplement theism; Ruse often supplements his atheism with elements drawn from the larger context of philosophical naturalism. The result is a rich and respectful dialogure and debate on the nature of science, cosmic origins, biological origins, the anthropic principle, and the meaning of life, among other important subjects.

Michael J. Reiss, Institute of Education, University College London "This book is a success. Unless already an expert in the science-religion field... any reader is bound to learn much of value in here."

The book provides a comprehensive and insightful discussion of what's really at stake in the "science and religion discussion" by two eminent philosophers who, speaking on behalf of their own opposing "worldviews," see the larger picture with remarkable clarity." - Kirk Wegter-McNelly, Union College
