Modern science has developed in three major phases: the Scientific Revolution; the rise of geology and Darwin's theory of evolution; and the natural sciences of the 20th century.Surveying the key developments in the natural sciences over the past 450 years, this text provides an outline of the present science and theology discourse and suggests how a scientific description of the world may be placed within a broad theistic theme. The first two phases are described through the work of leading ecientific figures, from Copernicus to Newton, and from Linnaeus to Darwin.

MEDIA REVIEWS
"This new edition is unchanged. It [is] more readily available in Europe and North America." "Science and Christian Belief, "April 2006
'This books does exactly what it says on the cover - and does it remarkably well...it is a pleasure (and an education) to have the issues put into historical context. A most helpful and readable book'--Sanford Lakoff "Theology "
'These chapters, covering developments before 1900, are divided into sub-sections, each concerned with the life and work of a particular scientist. This injects biographical interest and makes for absorbing reading.' 'In comparison with many other books on Science and Religion, this is an enjoyable and easy read.' '...this book gives a good overall orientation to the subject and provides pointers for further reading.'--Sanford Lakoff
"I found his treatments of both sciences [physics and biology] equally and admirably clear, economical and accurage. The same excellences are present in his treament of philosophy of science, and most of those of theology...This pacy little book... abounds in insights.." ESSSAT-News March 2005--Sanford Lakoff "Esssat News "
