Fully illustrated and accessibly written, this is an up to date and authoritative survey of the entire history of the relationship between science and Christianity. A thorough introduction to the nature of scientific and theological enquiry is followed by an examination of each major scientific discipline and its engagement with Christianity. Berry covers famous events (Galileo's trial, Darwinian controversy, Creationism) and less well-kwn debates. Recent scientific developments are explored including cloning, the human geme, GM crops, nuclear power, artificial intelligence, and gravity as an explanation for the origins of the Universe. The Intelligent Design movement and theories on how the world may end is also given consideration.
R.J. Berry was formerly Professor of Genetics at University College London for twenty-five years. He is a recipient of the UK Templeton Award for sustained advocacy of the Christian faith in the world of science, and author of several books in the field of science-faith relations. He is a former President of the Linnean Society, the British Ecological Society, and Christians in Science.
