    1 thought on “The Big Questions in Science and Religion”

    1. I've read read quite a few books in the area of science and religion. The majority of these authors are scientists -- there are not very many on the theological side.So I'll come to the point: Keith Ward's book "The Big Questions in Science and Religion" is arguably the very best single work in the field at the present time.Ward frames his discussion by posing and discussing 10 key questions of science and religion, ranging from "How did the universe begin? to "Does science allow for revelation [...]

    2. What I'm learning (so far) is that, even though a lot of it is review from all the philosophy courses I took as a philosophy major, what my philosophy lecturers failed to mention was the possibility for a reconciliation between religion and science in the human condition. I think, in retrospect, they had a huge bias toward atheism, which is fine, due to them being in a State University (these University types must just flock to State/Land-Grant Universities because they can get away with murder! [...]

    3. I decided to use this book for a class and was very disappointed overall. I've decided to never trust a book that has no footnotes. He just makes many sweeping claims without any evidence or note to say (but look at such and such for a different view). I think the problem was that it was written for a general audience so maybe his other work is not this bad.

    4. Keith Ward, philosopher-theologian-priest, brings his knack for clarity and logic to bear on the questions where science and religion overlap and (at least seem to) conflict. Ward shows that ways in which science is popularly thought to undermine religion are overblown. A non-fundamentalist faith can absorb and be enriched by the established findings of science.

    5. How does Keith Ward manage to write on a subject I find so fascinating and still manage to send me straight to sleep so quickly? How has he been so successful? My mind boggles. The content is not so bad, but it feels like the author is determined to stop you finding it interesting at all costs

    6. address gap in collection, rec'ed by Barb. cath.Intro to a lot of big questions: universe beginning and ending, evolution reconciled with Good God, miracles, space and time, etc. I've read it in a group and it provoked great discussions. Barbara
