Recent Books on Religion and Science

Publishers Weekly gives a brief review of two new books on this topic — The Genesis Enigma: Why the Bible Is Scientifically Accurate (Dutton, Oct.) and The Religion and Science Debate: Why Does It Continue? (Yale Univ., Sept.).

The second one looks the most interesting:

The 100th anniversary of Yale University’s Terry Lecture series prompted the publication of The Religion and Science Debate: Why Does It Continue? (Yale Univ., Sept.). Edited by Harold Attridge, dean of the Yale Divinity School, the book’s six contributors include Princeton University sociologist Robert Wuthnow, Notre Dame philosopher Alvin Plantinga, and Ronald Numbers, a science historian at the University of Wisconsin–Madison.

“We chose this topic because it’s been one of interest and concern on the U.S. public scene in recent years,” said Attridge. Along those lines earlier this year, the press published David Bentley Hart’s Atheist Delusions and Terry Eagleton’s Reason, Faith, and Revolution, both of which have been well received, publicist Robert Pranzatelli said.
