A Working Faith In An Age Of Science: Science And Religion In Harmony
Price: $2.99 USD. Words: 78,860. Language: English. Published: August 2, 2014. Categories: Nonfiction » Religion and Spirituality » Religion & Science
This book looks at several difficult questions which arise at the interface between science and religion. It does so in an introductory manner, with the science being presented in a "popular science" style. The target audience is from late teenage onwards, so no degree is needed. It argues that there need be no conflict between an authentic religious faith, and the findings of modern science.
