This reader brings together carefully selected material from a wide range of authors on the relationships between science, religion, and theology. It samples the recent literature on the challenges to religion posed by both modern physics and evolutionary biology, as well as exploring the relationship between scientific and theological approaches. Topics include models of interaction between science and religion, historical reflections on the 'conflict thesis', scientific and theological methods, creation and modern cosmology, uncertainty and chaos, creationism and evolutionary theory, the anthropic principle and design, and the challenge of reductionism.
