Many students and members of the public who follow news reports on science and religion may think that Protestantism and science are in conflict. But while evangelical attacks on evolution may make the headlines, many mainstream Protestant groups have long embraced science and the scientific worldview. This volume in the Greenwood Guides to Science and Religion covers those Protestant thinkers who seek to use the insights of science to further their understanding of religion and faith.

In addition, the volume will also discuss such trends at the liberal protestant acceptance of evolution, the advent of ecotheology, and the Social Gospel.

The volume includes a selection of primary source documents, a glossary and a timeline, and an annotated bibliography of the most useful resources for further research.

MEDIA REVIEWS
"In six chapters the author narrates the story of Liberal Protestantism's embrace of modern science....This book is a valuable introduction to important contributions to the important issues of the relation of science to religion. Liberal Protestantism contradicts the conventional stereotype of perceiving religion and science as inimical. It advocates dialogue and ultimately integration. This book is a valuable contribution to an important debate." - Catholic Library World
