The book offers a unique approach to the question of the relationship of religious to scientific thought. Although these two modes of thought are often portrayed as contradictory, Michael Barnes argues that they evolved together and are therefore complementary. He examines the very intracate relationships that have existed, and continue to exist, between the two. Barnes does not shrink from the controversy, but also insists that cultural differences must not be the basis of judgments of superiority and inferiority among human beings.

MEDIA REVIEWS
backed up with a plethora of notes, and the whole is extremely well-referenced ... An erudite and thought-provoking read, it will particularly appeal to those involved in the study of religion, science, psychology and philosophy. * Steve Else *
One of the most admirable features of this book is the even-handed treatment given to religious thought .. Barnes is also to be commended for emphasizing just how many different contributions there have been on both sides in the debate between religion and science in the past half-millennia or so. * Steve Else *
In an excellent final chapter, he reviews a wide range of theological approaches * John Habgood, TLS *
the author has an admirable habit of taking his critics seriously, itself an inducement to take his carefully measured answers equally seriously. * John Habgood, TLS *
