Faithful to Science: The Role of Science in Religion

Published on September 24, 2014

[Book, 2014] by Andrew Steane, Professor of Physics at Univ. of Oxford. The author is a Christian, but his personal faith is not the emphasis here. He states in the Introduction: “The aim of the book is to do us all a service by making it clear that science, like baking and architecture, is the property of the whole human race and is not the political partner of either atheism or theism or any other religious idea. Science is a natural part of the discourse of anyone who is prepared to use their mental faculties carefully. That includes the people who think carefully and come to theistic conclusions and also the people who think carefully and come to atheistic conclusions, and positions in between.”
