BioLogos Advisor Elaine Ecklund’s new book Secularity and Science: What Scientists Around the World Really Think About Religion offers a social scientific approach to understanding the relationship between science and religion in global public life. Drawing on extensive surveys and interviews with scientists in eight national contexts, she challenges some western assumptions about the relationship between science and religion. Among other findings, she concludes that the common “independence” and “conflict” models of this science-religion relationship are inadequate, and that even atheist scientists have a religious impulse.
