Item description for Religion and the Natural Sciences: The Range of Engagement by James E. Huchingson...
Appropriate for students at several levels of sophistication, this text takes an interdisciplinary approach to exploring science and religion. It may be used effectively with students who have no prior course work in philosophy and religious studies as well as by more advanced students. Networking sections integrate concepts and compare views on common issues. Emphasis is placed on contemporary material in the sciences, yet analysis is presented from both the traditional and contemporary perspectives in philosophy and religion. Parts are arranged according to specific natural sciences - physics, biology, and ecology - to assist readers in orienting themselves according to their interests.

Reviews - What do customers think about Religion and the Natural Sciences: The Range of Engagement?
A sampling for the curious May 12, 2001
Huchingson does readers a service in compiling a very informative and accessible collection of voices from all corners of the science-faith conversation. For those looking to explore the connection between scientific inquiry and religious faith; if at all they are reconcileable (which this reviewer thinks thye are, and without compromising the integrity of either), Huchingson's collection provides an amazing starting point from which to view various interpretations of the questions at hand. Contributors run the gamut, from C.S. Lewis and Paul Tillich, to Annie Dillard, to Isaac Asimov and Richard Dawkins. Huchingson is fair in allowing for voices in all corners of this conversation to have a place in his collection.
I would especially reccomend this for college undergrads and other "introductory" folks.
