"Religion and Science: A Beautiful Friendship?" takes a thoughtful look at the common origins, and common goals, of religion and science. It reveals how religion and science do not necessarily conflict, and in fact could form a useful partnership to shepherd human civilization into a peaceful and prosperous future. The author links the seeking impulses of both religion and science to the ideas of universal dignity and the human spirit.
This book contains a concise argument, and many of the ideas would benefit from further development. However, deeper research belongs in an academic tome, and this book is for average readers looking for where to plant their stakes in an age-old debate about the compatibility of religion and science. Thoughtful, open-minded, and broadly spiritual readers, who are not locked into a particular fundamentalist position, will enjoy this book.
