This book presents the arguments behind the key issues of science and belief in a simple and impartial way to enable readers to make their own informed decisions on what they believe. Eminent scientist Russell Stannard presents nine chapters - creation, evolution, intelligent design, extra-terrestrial intelligence, psychology, morality, miracles, the anthropic principle and the relationship between science and belief - each of which opens with quotations from ordinary people expressing typical views on all sides of the argument. Stannard follows by delving deeper into the issues, presenting the case for all sides and asking questions to enable the reader to make their own mind up.

MEDIA REVIEWS
`[Stannard] explores controversial subjects, such as Creation, intelligent design, evolution and miracles. Writing simply and impartially, his aim is to encourage readers to make their own decisions on what they believe.' * The War Cry *
This is an impressive must-read book for all thinking people, atheists and believers alike. It succeeds in making it reasonable to be both scientific and religious, to be up-to-date in both fields, to hold a chair in physics and be a lay minister in the Church of England. -- John Morris * The Good Bookstall *
This is a book which will be found helpful, not only by sixth-formers tackling these questions but also by any intelligent enquirer seeking a treatment which is balanced and careful, without demanding delving into an excessive degree of academic complexity. -- John Pilkinghome * Theology *
This is a book which will be found helpful, not only by sixth formers tackling these questions but also by any intelligent enquirer seeking a treatment which is balance and careful, without demanding delving into an excessive degree of academic complexity. -- John Polkinghome * Theology *
The big issues are well chosen, ranging from old chestnuts such as evolution in it's many guises, to extra-terrestrial intelligence, psychology and morality. Stannard's scientific background makes the science clear and engaging. -- Tom King * The Lance *
